06/21/20 – This year’s Summer Solstice highlights many Sawbill “Firsts” : Welcomed increases in people scheduling canoe trips; daily filled entry point BWCA permits; and campgrounds booked to capacity. Also, pictured is a group of friends who realized a first together of having dipped paddles into the Boundary Waters .
Traveling from the Twin Cities area, they exclaimed, “This Boundary Waters experience was our first time. We were so excited and nervous yet Autumn, our Sawbill outfitter helped give us confidence. We had a fantastic day paddling. This wild wilderness is SO special (even the mosquitoes).” So whether a trip to Sawbill is your first or a repeat visit, schedule your trip well in advance to ensure that your BWCA experience, first and foremost, will meet your wildest expectations.
