Boundary Waters Canoe Trip Planning

Reservation Fees:

A $6.00 non-refundable reservation fee is required for each reserved permit.

Use Fees:

A per person user fee is charged for your group when reserving an Overnight Permit for entries from 1st of May to 30th September each year.

 

Person Type Fee Rate
Adult $16.00
Child/Youth $8.00
Interagency Senior Pass $8.00
Interagency Access Pass $8.00
Interagency Youth Access Pass $4.00

Seasonal Fee Cards:

Seasonal Fee Cards may be purchased in person after May 1 from any Superior National Forest District Office. This card fulfills the fee requirements for the season but does not eliminate the need for obtaining a BWCAW permit and paying the $6 non-refundable reservation fee.

 

Person Type Seasonal Fee
Adult $64.00
Child/Youth $32.00
Interagency Senior Pass $32.00
Interagency Access Pass $32.00
Interagency Youth Access Pass $16.00
** Please note that the discounted prices for the seasonal fee cards are only applied at the time of issuing the permit. When making reservations, you will pay for a minimum of 2 adult overnight user fees. Refunds will be applied at the time of permit issuance. ** All cards (Interagency Senior/Access Pass Holders, or Seasonal) must be presented at the time of permit pickup to receive a discount, otherwise the full fee will be charged.
