The Route Finder provides clear detailed information and is reliable information both on the screen and put into action on the trail.

The Route Finder is fantastic. I defy anyone to find anything so comprehensive that works this well. It's so quick and easy to modify, I will often use it for various 'what if?' scenarios.

My friend told me about this website. He thought it was better than sliced bread… Better than any other BWCA website.

To help plan and anticipate for a better trip experience, more information is better in my opinion, and Paddle Planner presents a great source of information.

The Route Finder is the best part and sets this site far above other research sites for mapping the BWCA.

Easy way to measure trip distances as well as finding campsite and portage data along with it. I spent many years punching holes in maps with dividers. It's much easier this way.

It's great for routing your trip and finding camp sites that may fit your needs. The route planner gives you mileage totals making it fun and helpful to calculate how far you'll travel.

I found nothing comparable online and really compliment the creator on his dedication to building a great set of tools. Fantastic product (and I rarely give compliments like this)!

Paddle Planner has it all...campsite reviews are helpful, the trip planner is awesome, and being able to download .gpx files are the icing on the cake.

I was attracted by the Route Finder interactive maps that allow me to quickly map out a route and give me a wealth of basic information about mileage, portages, and time.
