All geocachers interested in the MN State Park Geocaching History Challenge and/or an opportunity to see the beautiful Northwest Angle area of Minnesota, are invited to an adventure on Garden Island. State Park caches and an additional remote island cache are available along the way up to this pristine NORTHERN Minnesota location.

Depending on the weather (wind) it is a 45 minute ride from Young's Bay Resort in the Northwest Angle (Angle Inlet,Mn) to Garden Island, a 2 hour excursion depending on weather.

For those wishing to take the charter boat,or sailing your own ship, we will gather near the marina at Young's Bay Resort for the departure.

Even though the Northwest Angle is in Minnesota, crossing the Canadian border will be required. Passports or birth certificate are required and the locals recommend bringing them. Manitoba also has a strict policy pertaining to anyone having a DWI conviction within the last 10 years, they will be denied entry. (We’re only mentioning it because the business owners we have contacted were adamant about making that clearly understood.)

A local informed us:
I KNOW that passports or birth certificates and a picture ID (kids too) are required to re-enter the US. Don’t forget to stop at the Video phone at Jim’s Corner both coming and going from the Angle. You will have to write down a check-in number when going back into Manitoba so have paper and pencil ready.
Visit this pagefor passport information;
scroll to the middle of this page to see the phone booth. It is sixty miles from Warroad to Young’s Bay partly on gravel road.
