Please join Mike Woida and Justin Edman for a 4-day 3-night trip on Rainy Lake in beautiful Voyageurs National Park. We have group campsite R74 reserved for our group that is located approximately 12 statute miles from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center. Our plan is to meet at the visitor center at 8:00 AM on June 5th. The two hours following will be allotted for packing our kayaks and making any last minute preparations necessary for the trip. We will launch as a group with an anticipated paddle speed of 3mph no later than 10:00AM. There will be a designated lunch stop somewhere in between the launch and our destination for a chance to eat, go to the bathroom, and stretch your legs if necessary. We plan to make camp sometime between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Everyone will need to be self-sufficient for food and water for the duration of the trip to minimize the risk of spreading Covid. Rainy Lake is a big lake that can be challenging. The water will be very cold in the early part of June so a wetsuit would be the minimum requirement, a dry suit would be preferred. Rainy is a popular fishing lake so there will be boat traffic. You will need a National Geographic “Trails Illustrated” Map of Voyageurs National Park.
