Thinkin about heading up to Ely with the wife over labor day weekend and am looking for a god day trip. Would kinda like a short loop but not opposed to there and back. Anyway these are what I need info on:
1) Canoe Outfitter. Would be nice if they were based on a lake so we can just pull in a shove off. Not required though.
2) Route. I'd like to get in a couple short portages and like I said above, a loop would be nice. Not sure if it's possible on a day trip though.
3) A campground somewhere north of the cities. We're gonna be about 7 hours away and may not get out till after 5 or so. Cities is about 3 -3.5 hours away so we may need a camp just north of there.
4) Campground by Ely. We may need 2 nights , maybe 3 if we get out early enough. BTW, be pulling my teardrop (small camper).
Note: Being that it's a busy holiday weekend campgrounds that have lots of room or take reservations would be nice.
Thanks for any help,
