The weather this August has been perfect for paddling the Boundary Waters and Quetico Park. The wilderness winds have only blown lightly and we've hardly had any rainy days. Canoe campers have enjoyed the warm temperatures and swimming in the BWCA lakes. We're looking forward to more perfect paddling weather the rest of August and into the fall.
The number of canoe country visitors to the BWCA and Quetico Park drops off about this time of the year. Kids are heading back to sport practices and school and teachers are starting workshops. That leaves the woods to those who have saved vacation time for the end of summer and fall.
The drop in the number of visitors to the Boundary Waters and Quetico Park is what lures many folks back to the canoe country in September and October. It's wonderful to camp on a lake barely inside of the BWCA and not see another soul for a week. It's also a great time to camp since the water is still warm enough for swimming and there's barely a bug to be found.
If you have some vacation time left then come on up and visit us at Voyageur. We'd love for you to be able to enjoy this perfect paddling weather.
