Hi Bill,
My wife Andria and I were at Sawbill last weekend with a couple of friends. Andria and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary, and I have to say for me personally this is one of the best camping trips I’ve ever had. We couldn’t have picked a better destination to celebrate our marriage. In fact, 5 years ago after our wedding we stayed at a cabin on the North Shore. We didn’t get to do any canoeing on that trip, and have been looking forward to this last weekend for a very long time.
We stayed at the campground all weekend, and I’d have to say, we definitely made the best of our 2 days on the water. Saturday we paddled to the North end of Lujenida and back. Sunday we made it all the way to Flame where we had the lake to ourselves for about 4 hours where we did some fishing and spent most of the time sitting on a group of rocks in the middle of the lake just staring off into the wilderness. The scenery was truly amazing! Around every corner, one of the 4 of us said “WOW!”…….by the end of the weekend we had named our trip “Wow Weekend 2010”. Hopefully there will be a “Wow Weekend 2011”!
On our way back from Flame, we were portaging from Burnt into Smoke.
Andria and I were already in the water waiting for our friends on shore when we heard some loud thumps, rustling, and branches snapping—-pretty sure it was either a Moose or a Bear, but we didn’t actually get to see it—even though we estimated it was probably only 20 ft away from our friends on shore.
The campground at Sawbill was great. All the amenities we needed and more. And I’d have to say, everyone we met—other campers, and Sawbill employees were polite, informative, and friendly. We left Sawbill completely exhausted, but wanting more. We all can’t wait to get back. I would imagine that Sawbill will be one of our favorite destinations for many years to come.
Thanks again for everything. Hope to see you again soon.
Mark, Andria, Jonah & Katie
