I'll give you a better report as the season starts...but typically bear problems occur on CUTOVER in early season, sometimes Sugerbush, and possibly the Lost Bay campsites...but those tend to get more wondering bear traffic during the mid-summer months. Cutover has been the area of concern generally early season, due to young cubs and bears that actually stay their throught the year!

Wendy,

Call the Int'l Falls Park headquarters the week prior to your trip and they can tell you of any bear reports and closed campsites. The last couple years there has been a sow with cubs on cuculus island, must be a den there. 2 years ago we stayed in the site right north of there and she had 3 cubs, and there was what i belive to be a yearling female of hers also on the island. The yearling would swim across the channel to shore, right between all the boats fishing. I have a good picture of her near my in-laws boat. Then she would come down a path towards our campsite, cut the corner (site is on a point) and come out in the little bay behind us. She'd walk the beach to a path in the NW corner and up in the trees she'd go. Usually several hours later she would reemerge and reverse the trip. Saw her do this 4 times over the Memorial weekend, very cool. She never bothered us at all. The mom and 3 cubs were fun to watch as they scrounged the south shoreline of cuculus too.

If your in Namakan, there has been bear issues on namakan island in years past, and the sexton island campsite is usually closed for nesting eagles.

Our first trip up isnt until july 6-10 this year, just can't wait!!

Hey KabKid, Will give you a call re: renting and having you drop canoe off while we are up..also another day of your expert Guiding if it works with your schedule..bringing daughter and her significant other also, may not be able to stand them in our fishing boat so hence the canoe...Saw your boat for sale---just after we bought one. To bad, I have fond memories of you laughing at my fishing skills last year in your boat... Love the new Guide Adventure..site/ just found it. See you 6/24
