New Summer Hours at the USFS Kawishiwi Ranger District Office in Ely, MN

The Kawishiwi Ranger Station on the edge of Ely has new hours for summer 2011.  Beginning May 1, they are open for BWCAW permit issuing from 7AM - 4:30PM seven days per week.  Last year they stayed open until 5PM, so be aware of that change if you have the old hours stuck in your head or smart phone.

Boundary Waters Guide Service is a Cooperator with the Kawishiwi Ranger District and can help you reserve your required BWCAW entry permit, and conveniently issue your permit at our building in Ely. 

The new Kawishiwi Ranger District building has attractive displays with local and naturalist information and is worth a visit whether your permit is issued there or elsewhere.
