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.
