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.
