forest service "official" sites

5 posts in this topic

Do you need to reserve these? I'm camping up by Ely next weekend, and there are 2 lakes I wanna hit. One has an unofficial site which I plan on staying in, but I wanna portage up to the next lake and stay there. However it is an official site, don't know if I need to reserve that or not. Any input? Thanks

I do a fair amount of back country travel. I've never heard of any reserving any back country camp sites. Whether it be in forest service areas or the BW or any other back country area.

I think it's first come, first serve. No reservations neccessary.

You do not need to reserve them, but if the campsite falls within the boundary waters you will need to get a permit. If it will be a single day thing with no overnight you can fill out a day permit, but if there will be an overnight stay you need to get an overnight permit from the Kawishiwi Ranger station on the east end of Ely.

the past 3 have hit the nail on the head,, just make sure if your in the B_DUB,, get the needed permit. Lakes outside the B-Dub with campsites,,, no permits.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
