Nestled right beside the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) is the secluded yet charming Trails End Campground. At Trails End, you'll find a great "op-paw-tunity" to camp in northern Minnesota's Superior National Forest.
Many of the campsites available at Trails End are walk-in only. That means you'll be leaving your vehicle behind as you make your way along the wooded trails to your remote and temporary home. Almost all campsites are tent-only, as there's no means of getting to the sites with RVs or other campers. While some RV sites are offered, these sites are limited. Due to the remoteness of this campground, amenities are also limited. Campers do have access to clean water, but sewage and electric hookups are not available. Nightly rates vary, and no overnight fees apply for winter campers.
For recreation, there's plenty of outdoor activities at Trails End. If you and your pooch decide to venture into the wilderness area, you'll be able to view and access Seagull Lake. Here, you can boat and fish, and the lake is home to various species such as northern pike, walleye, bass, and trout. If you do plan to go fishing, however, you will need to purchase a day permit from the campground office. Overnight permits are also available. Explore the waters by canoe with your pooch on board or walk the diverse trails and paths zig-zagging through the forested landscape. Be on the lookout for bald eagles, loons, and even moose during your hikes.
You're reminded that, when visiting both the campground and surrounding forests and wilderness areas, your pup is to always be on-leash. Clean up after your pooch and manage their behavior at all times. Never leave your pup unattended, for their safety and comfort.
If you're in need of a rustic retreat where the busyness of city life can't find you, check out northern Minnesota's Trails End Campground. With dogs welcomed with open paws, this campground is the "paw-fect" getaway for you and your pooch!
