Join the Museum and Hauling Dogs, LLC for a winter, wilderness adventure!
This trip is a GO as of Jan 13, 2022
Travel by dogsled from Moose Lake Landing up to Knife Lake and camp on the east end of the lake, near Dorothy’s Isle of Pines. This program is 95 percent outdoors with moderately strenuous activities, an emphasis on ice fishing.
There will be ample time for hunting those lake trout, exploring by snowshoe, socializing with others or the sled dogs (all are friendly!), or just relaxing. As a learning opportunity to understand what goes into a successful and comfortable winter camping trip, all participants are encouraged to participate in the various aspects of the experience as much or as little as they want.
