The Grand Portage and Bois Forte Bands entered into (in 2014) a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the US Forest Service (USFS) to allow for Band members use of designated campgrounds within the 1854 Treaty Area exempt of fees.

The information in the Superior National Forest Camping General Information Booklet provides for campground availabilities, necessary logistics, and USFS regulations which must be adhered to while partaking in this opportunity.

In addition, the 1854 Treaty Authority has been delegated the authority by the respective Tribal Councils to regulate specific camping related activities. Please make sure to acquire the 1854 Treaty Authority Superior National Forest Camping Regulations.
