How To Find The Right Canoe Pack

The BWCAW is the most heavily used wilderness area in the United States of America. Thousands of canoers travel to these areas each year for traditional camping and canoeing experiences. While it is an adventure, prepping for the trip is not always the easiest task. So how do you know what canoe pack and gear to bring and what is going to be the best way to travel light without sacrificing comfort and resources?
