What we're about

Welcome to the Backpacking and Group Site Camping Meetup. As the name implies the main focus of this group will be backpack camping and car camping at group campsites. The backpacking trips will primarily be on the Superior Hiking Trail and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The car camping will usually be at state parks. The car camping will be for tents only - no campers or trailers. There is another group that goes to group campsites for trailers. The state park group sites that allow trailers usually cost significantly more then those sites that are just for tents.
