Kawishiwi River Area BWCA Canoe Trip Route

There are several entry points which take you into the Kawishiwi River area. From these entry points, we can design several nice 3-5 day loops with moderate to easy portages. For the adventuresome, we can also put you into some lakes with longer, more difficult portages. Here you'll find fewer people.

Van transportation to Farm Lake begins the trip. You'll enter the west end of the North Kawishiwi River after a short paddle. A very direct route out to the Lake One landing is traveling east along the river. You'll encounter three 10 rod portages and then a challenging 200 rod trek. On the Kawishiwi River, you'll fish for walleye, northern pike, panfish and some smallmouth. A couple of short portages complete the trip as you head to the Lake One landing for your van ride back to our base. Easily done in 3 days.

All of the Kawishiwi Routes can be done in reverse. There are several other options available as well. View Map 1 View Map 2
