This is the second year in a row we visited Rockwood. We have decided to make a yearly adventure. Loved hearing the loons in the morning. Stayed in the same cabin as last year and will be staying it again next year!

Thank you VERY much! We think this is our happy place as well...and the loons STILL haven't flown south. See you next year!

Thank you Tyke! Yes, it's been rather busy and it's tough to decide between an easy portage and less people...we'll work on that for sure! Skipper is a less traveled portage, as you know, because it's harder, and nearly a mile long. Thanks for the...More
