It all starts on a bus. 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. While the ride can be long—6-8 hours in some cases—it’s a chance to meet fellow campers as you travel across Minnesota to the literal “end of the road” at the Northwest Angle.
Upon arrival at Young’s Bay campers are met by Laketrails Staff and our small flotilla of boats, ready to transport folks out to the island. The boat ride is approximately 6 miles and can take anywhere from 15-25 minutes, depending on wind and weather conditions. The 18-foot boats allow campers the thrill of being on the water and to catch their first views of the islands as they complete their day’s journey to Laketrails.
