The Quetico Park is where Don Beans began his guiding career, he is a licensed Canadian guide and knows these beautiful wilderness waterways extremely well. Quetico offers canoeists a more rustic experience than the BWCA, the Ontario Provincial Park sprawls nearly 100 miles, encompasses 1,776 square miles, contains nearly 2,000 lakes and lies adjacent to the larger BWCA in Minnesota. The beautiful and rugged Quetico Park is a canoe camping paradise providing paddlers with views of picturesque rock cliffs, majestic waterfalls, virgin red and white pine, spruce forests, pristine rivers and unspoiled lakes.
The fishing inside Quetico Park ranges from great to spectacular. This area has some of the finest smallmouth bass angling, with
When considering a Quetico canoe trip, there are a few of differences between this beautiful park and the neighboring BWCA. Most campsites are not marked on maps, there are no latrines or fire grates provided for guests use. It does take more time to travel into and out of Quetico but as our previous guests' can attest, the camp sites and superb angling are well worth it.
