BWCA Online Topo Maps

This entry is part of 5 in the series Boundary Waters Canoe Area Maps

The USGS 1:24,000 scale topographic maps here are overlayed with the data we’ve made available for download in kml format here and displayed here on Google Maps. On this map portages are also labeled with their length in feet (not yards or rods, sorry) along with access points and campsites. The data shown here is based on others data: entry points, portages, and wilderness boundary data from Friends of the Boundary Waters, et al.; campsite locations from data by Peter Berbee.

You can view the 1:24,000 series maps with details overlayed here. You should also check out the other posts in this series and download the .kml for browsing in Google Earth.
