Camping on an Onterio island on LOW

Recommended Posts

That should be Ontario, not Onterio in the subject- wouldn't want to mispell something and make some English major mad grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Can somebody explain to me the rules and regs regarding camping on an island on the Ontario side of LOW? This coming summer I'd like to go by water from the lighthouse gap area (we'll have Ont. lisences and border crossing permits). I want to camp on an island near the North side of Big Island (or East of there a little ways- Rubber, Firebag, Naongashing- just that general area.) First, what do I need to to do to camp anywhere up there? Next, some or all of Big Island is Indian preserve- can I not camp on any of the North side of Big? I assume I can camp on most of it? I know there's a camping permit of some sort- what is involved in getting it? How much does it cost? Can I order it, my lisence, and border crossing permit online? Where and how?
Holy dump, I ask a lot of questions! grin.gif
Thanks.

Thanks Killer, but I have one more question that I couldn't find an answer to. Can I order a border crossing permit online or by phone or do I need to get that in person?

The Boundary Waters guys should have that answer for you. Only time I've gotten one was on a canoe trip, and the outfitter took care of that.

Scoot,
You can do anything you want. . .if you don't get caught. jk
Actually, it's about time to start planning a summer LOTW trip isn't it? When are you thinking about going?

Anothe trip that you'd enjoy would be a flathead trip to the MN River.

We'll talk,
MJ

I'm planning, but it's too far off to worry about details yet. We'll see. A trip chasing flats would be fun. My dad's been talking with a fellow rod builder about a trip this summer sometime- an exchange LOW for MN river deal. I think I might be able to weasel in on that deal.

    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
