Access to the BWCA is by permit only. Canoeists are assigned a specific date and entry point, but once they've entered the BWCA, groups are allowed to travel freely throughout the wilderness. Straddling the Canada-Minnesota border, Basswood Lake is not only one of the largest BWCA waters, but also a top walleye and grouse destination. The Fall Lake, Moose Lake, Snow Bank Lake and Farm Lake entry points all provide access to Basswood Lake. For more information or to obtain a permit, call the BWCA reservation line (877-550-6777).
