I went to Gunflint because I had a livingsocial voucher for a four night canoe trip. It was AWESOME! We worked our butts off, traveled many miles and saw some amazing sites. However, this probably had more to do with the fact that the boundary waters are beautiful than with Gunflint. The gear we got from Gunflint was old, and I mean OLD. Luckily we all had our own backpacks, because the backpacks they provide are awful..I mean seriously, think old army canvas sacks. No back, shoulder, or waist support whatsoever, which is crazy considering how far out into the wilderness they send people.. So, would I go back? Sure. Would I go back and pay full price? Heck no. If you can find a deal, then go for it. Its a once in a lifetime kinda thing.
