It all starts on a bus....


So, how does this Laketrails experience actually “play out?” It all starts on a bus (Yes, a bus! – look below for the schedule) of all places. Due to our outstanding (yet remote) location, Laketrails provides a bus to transport young people from as far away as the Minneapolis St Paul area to our site. Campers first Laketrails experience is of the joys (and sorrows) of a 6-8 hour bus ride to the “end of the road.”
They also meet new friends on the bus, and begin what for some may become life-long friendships. When they arrive at Young’s Bay where the road ends, campers are greeted by a flotilla of boats skippered by Laketrails’ Guides. Several of these are smaller (18-foot) craft which will allow them to experience the thrill of spray in their faces as they make the final passage to the Base Camp on Oak Island.
