BWCA – Resources

There are some very fine resources on the BWCA out there.  I’ll focus on the resources for “I’ve never been, I need to learn and plan this thing out!”  I’ll add to this post as I go. – Massively helpful site that has tools to help plan the trip, find outfitters, etc.  That’s important but coupled with the helpful members in the forum it’s an incredible resource.

I am a member of that site and made an initial post named “Hello, and BWCA in 2019”  Go there, sign up, and see what it’s all about.

USDA Forest Service, BWCAW Area.

USDA Forestry Service – The USDA (Forest Service) manages the BWCA.  The page I linked to has some information, to include a Planning Guide (PDF).  The site also gives a brief background of the legislation that created the area, dates & information about group quotas, and other useful links at the bottom of the page.  Additionally, there is a “Leave No Trace” video that is required viewing before picking up a permit.  More info on that is on the site.
