BWCAW Expansion

BOUNDARY WATERS EXPANSION OF THOSE WHO CAN TRAVEL WITHOUT A PERMIT

Grand Portage and Bois Forte band members are not required to obtain a Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) permit to access the Wilderness. The Superior National Forest’s policy for enrolled band members is to allow access to the BWCAW with a band membership card or 1854 ID card. Other BWCAW rules are to be followed.

Access to the BWCAW without a permit has recently been expanded to include immediate family when accompanying an enrolled band member. Immediate family is defined as a spouse and those of lineal decent, including children and grandchildren. Any other members of the party who are not band members nor immediate family are required to have a BWCAW permit.
