Wilderness camping on Rainy

3 posts in this topic

What are the possibilities for island (or not) camping on Rainy? I'm guessing it's OK on the canadian side with a crown land permit? How about the US side? Any motor restrictions anywhere on Rainy? Thanks..

http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/fishing/crownland.html Check this out I beleive it will answer your question about camping on the Canadian side. On the Minnesota side there is Voyagers National Park with boat to sites available. I am not sure of any regulations concerning wilderness camping in Minnesota outside of the park. No motor restrictions that I am aware of on either side of the border. John

There are no motor restrictions on any part of Rainy. Basically every campsite on the U.S. side is on an island, and if you want a real wilderness experience there are some back-country sites on smaller lakes towards the east end of Rainy. Brown, Oslo, and Peary, and Cruiser are some of the lakes with nice sites (I'm biased because I help build most of them) and you can go back there and never see a person. Most of them are .2 miles to about a mile hike to get back in.

I can't remember the exact rules on camping in an undesignated site, but I'm pretty sure it's fine. Go to the park's website for info and a map with all the sites.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
