A friend and I are considering doing a 7-8 day trip in this park, and we have a few questions.

From what I know, it seems that the park doesn't "open" until mid-may. Or at least the organization that runs it. What if we want to go before then?

This blends into my next question, that is, when does the ice leave the lakes? We want to do the trip beginning around May 10th.

Thanks
Scott

I called the park "North" office once at 819 736 7431 a few years ago off season.(I got this off the back of the park map). I spoke to a person who was very helpful with my questions, he might be able to help you with yours. I have found the folks at LaDomaine to be overly cautious as far as routes and road access, but very friendly and helpful otherwise. (This could be a problem, wet roads) I have done rt 61 in late May, no sign of ice and roads where dry.

We did a variation on route 10 last year the weekend before they officially "opened". We confirmed with them by phone that we were going to be paddling and they didn't seem to have any problem with leaving the car in the parking lot.

The weather, on the other hand, was unbelievable. High winds, about 2 degrees C. and freezing water make for an interesting trip on that big water. We picked campsites based on protection from the wind and even then I wished I had taken my better sleeping bag - all our water froze during the night and I wore all my clothing.

Be prepared for cold and wind if you go...
