Not that it's deep back country, but wondering if it's necessary to activate our inReach for our trip next week or whether we can depend on a cell phone in an emergency.

I had no cell reception (Rogers network) on site 29 this past August. For what it's worth, I had no reception on George Lake (site 3) or Killarney lake (site 15) either.

I don't recall reception either at site 31 during the summer of 2017. If you are able to climb the signal blocking ridges you should get a decent signal. George Lake campground has reception fro Rogers.

Not that this will help, but Grace Lake has really good Rogers reception, while on Nellie it was spotty. Climbing to one of the lookouts yielded a strong signal on Nellie.

Thanks for the replies. I expected that one might get connected up on the ridges but not at the bottom of the bowl. We'll activate the inReach.
