Re: Paddling the Inner Lakes

Lake Ritchie #1, Wood Lake very close, not really even #2

Wood Lake gives access to Siskiwit which is both beautiful & terrifyingly sublime.

Re: Trying to plan a first time canoe/portage trip

Which, Ritchie--east or west, is "the canoe campground" ? New topic: in your opinion, do I need a canoe flotation device ? I am not going to be in L Superior much, & I would think the inland lake swell would generally be less high & hazardous. Next, what are my best safety signaling protections ? My...

Re: Trying to plan a first time canoe/portage trip

For Ingo: Why do you state trip for inland lakes not recommended beginning/returning Rock Harbor. What I meant is I will be leaving from Copper H & not on Voyageur II I might be able to get a taxi to McCargo, but still need insight how relaxed the Inland Lakes would be. Don't mind working hard, but ...

Re: Trying to plan a first time canoe/portage trip

Thanks for the replies. The trip starts EX Copper Harbor.

I am taking the provided info & overlaying it on my IR map. I will have more questions after I wrap my ahead around what both are telling me & as I "visualize" the route.

I am trying to put together a trip on using a 2 person, lite weight Weenonah canoe paddling maybe Tobin Harbor & then portaging between lakes. Has anyone done this & can suggest a 4-5 day itinerary ? I really ne...
