BWCA Entry Point 29 - North Kawishiwi River

Kawishiwi Ranger District

From Ely, head northeast on Highway 169 for 15 miles to Ojibway Lake Road. Turn right on Ojibway Lake Road and continue south about 1/2 mile to the parking area.

You can unload your gear right at the edge of the lake, but the parking lot is about 300 feet back up the road. There is a dock, a boat ramp and some picnic tables here.

It is about a one mile paddle across Ojibway Lake to the Triangle Lake portage. A short 5 rod portage provides access to Triangle Lake. It is another one mile paddle across Triangle Lake to the portage that leads to the North Kawishiwi River. The portage to the river is a relatively strenuous 190 rod affair.

This is the main road leading into the entry point area. Just behind you to the right is the parking lot. Just ahead of you to the left is a parking area for a small picnic area and also the restroom. Ahead of you is the boat ramp and dock on the shore of Ojibway Lake.

The parking area for canoeists and boaters. This is about 100 yards (20 rods) from the boat ramp/dock.

The bulletin board. Day permits are in the box hanging on the left side of the board.

An additional parking lot for people using the picnic area or the biffy.

The boat ramp and dock on Ojibway Lake. Your view is toward the south.

Filling out a day permit and walking out onto the dock on Ojibway Lake.

Walking from Ojibway Lake back up towards the parking area along Ojibway Lake Road.
