Outstanding Boundary Waters Canoe Trip

Filed under: Voyageur Canoe Outfitters Experience — Sue Prom @ 5:27 am

VCO does a really good outfitting job. First, the staff is really friendly and knowledgeable about the areas reachable from their location. Second, the little camper cabins are clean and a great night-before place to stay. Not as comfortable as a motel in Grand Marais would be, but breakfast is included and a Weber grill and picnic table are provided. Sort of eases you into camping. Third, the location allows trips entirely without portages on Saganaga, entries into the Quetico, both of which I might do in the future, and conventional small lake portage BWCA paddling & camping. All is beautiful. VCO will also boat you to the west end of Sag. to shave a couple hours off the paddling to the small lake area. It costs $50/person each way, so the value isn’t really great. We found terrific campsites on Ester Lake (small peaceful lake 4 portages in) and on Sag. The sound of the motorboats on Sag. isn’t ideal, but wasn’t unbearable for one night and our last-night out campsite was pretty close to the bases. Be sure to check out the equipment provided carefully. We were given a Thermarest that was labeled “Full length” that was only 3/4. Otherwise, the gear was good. the Granite Gear packs were especially good, but the $3 each heavy duty bag liners we brought were much better than just the basic garbage bags provided.
