I actually camped on Knife Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. It was one of the best experiences in my life since we performed geological mapping by canoe. We dove for, cooked, and ate fresh water clams, witnessed bald eagles and seagulls fighting over food, portaged into some of the least-visited lakes in the area and came out of it with a published geological map!
A beautiful camping spot and is quiet in the spring. We camped before the summer season so the facilities were still locked. The site we had right off the lake was very pretty and relaxing, especially serene in the morning.
The campsite overlooks the valley and there are incredible bluffs and geological features everywhere. It's so much fun to walk around and climb the rocks. I imagine fall would be great there when the leaves are changing on the trees below the bluffs.
I hiked the 45 miles across Isle Royale and every site was quiet with an outhouse-type toilet or less. The wildlife is incredible and may get very close. We saw four moose and heard wolves howl at night. You can only access this park by ferry and it's very remote. Bring deet and use it often, the mosquitos are relentless. This is one of my favorite places in the world! So remote and untouched from the rest of the world.
