Details: We will be paddling and camping on the Sawmill Lake Canoe Trail for two nights over Memorial Weekend. This is my first trip to this Canoe Trail, so its sorta a 'scouting' trip. Its based out of Sawmill Lake Campground and has five small glacier 'pothole' lakes with short marked portages. You will camping out of your boat, but you must transport all your own gear. The camping is 'dispersed' (no marked camp sites) and requires a Washburn Co. Dispersed camping permit, it is only $10.00 for two nights.
Please contact me for details. The group will be limited to 6 as I do not know the size of the dispersed camping sites.
