We go to Basswood lake which allows boats with motors. we used to canoe in, but dad is getting up there in age and this is easier on him. This area is exactly the way it was when the Glaciers receeded. no signs, no lights, no cabins nothing but Gods creation. Some of the best times I have spent with dad and the two older kids. last year I had to do surgery on dads hand. He was taking a pike off and put two of the three trebel hooks through the palm of his hand. We were approximately 42 miles to the car and another 16 miles to town. The worst part is there is a two mile portage. my dad and son watch a moose walk through camp last year as well. There bears, wolfs, eagles, deer and of course great fishing.
As far as I know this is about as primative as it gets.
Sounds like a piece of Heaven. Thanks for the tip.
