Do you just want to paddle in the BWCA this coming summer?  Then keep in mind that on January 27th, 2016 we can start booking your first come first reserved BWCA permit.  This date is when we want to book the entry points that are popular, but don't have many permits allowed each day.  This would be entry points such as Mudro Lake, Little Gabbro Lake, Moose River North, Little Indian Sioux.  

Do you have multiple groups going in on the same day?  Try to book early so you have more options available to pick from. 

Keep in mind you don't have to have your total group number when we reserve your permits.  We just need your exact travel dates and what entry point you would like to use.  We can adjust your group size once you arrive at Spirit of the Wilderness to have your permit issued.
