Boundary Waters MapsMapping a Boundary Waters Adventure

The labyrinth of lakes in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness offers stunning scenery, remote camp sites and opportunities for fishing, wildlife viewing and so much more.

This is an area of Minnesota, however, that requires careful preparation to visit.

There are the "big picture" maps that give an overview of the "lay of the land" and other detailed maps that show specific campsites, portages and other area details you will need for a successful trip. These maps are accurate enough to be used for finding portages, hiking trails and campsites in the Superior National Forest, BWCA and Quetico Park.

Your first purchase when planning a trip into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness should be a Boundary Waters planner.

Digital Boundary Waters Maps

If you canoe, fish, camp, snowmobile or hike in the border country of Minnesota and Canada, you'll do well to use a GPS.

Electronic devices are increasingly popular and provide a sense of security when you are out in this vast wilderness area. One such device is the DeLorme AG-009871-201 inReach SE

This satellite communicator allows you to type, send and receive, track and SOS all from the palm of your hand. You can  send and receive text messages at the ends of the earth and everywhere in between with the handy color screen and virtual keyboard.

When off the grid and out of cell phone range, you can quickly and easily share your journey with family and friends and let them ping and message you. In the event of an emergency, you can trigger an SOS, receive delivery confirmation, and then have a two-way text conversation with the search and rescue monitoring center until help arrives.

Most Boundary Waters entry points are accessed through Ely or Grand Marais. These are wonderful Minnesota vacation destinations whether or not you are planning a Boundary Waters Minnesota vacation.
