Remote is a good word to describe this national park. I felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and really, when you look at a map we were!! The park is a water-based park with over 35% being water. There are also over 500 islands included in park lands. We visited two of the three visitors’ centers-Kabetogama Lake and Ash River. The Ash River visitors center is located in an old 1930s hunting camp lodge that, at that time, was only accessible by water.
We stayed at Woodenfrog State Forest Campground close to the western edge of the park. This site was picturesque- large sites, very private and being off season, we were one of just a few occupied spots. We met the Bishop family who have been traveling for 2 years. Our kids were so excited to play with other kids and they passed on a wealth of information.
