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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
