PCD has moved to MN Canoeing!

The Quetico Paddler's Campsite Database (PCD) has moved to MN Canoeing! For the last decade, the PCD has been the place to go for Quetico campsite information. It has over 1,200 campsite ratings for the Quetico. Dr. J. Archer Harris asked if I would like to take over the PCD and move everything over to MN Canoeing. Of course I accepted! This is a great opportunity, and I am honored to be chosen to carry on the work.

For those not familiar with the PCD and/or Quetico Park, the Quetico has no established campsites. You can camp anywhere that you can find a spot. That being said, there are only so many spots you can camp. The PCD was an effort to document and rate these campsites. Dr. Harris put a lot of time and effort into creating and maintaining the database. Many canoeists contributed their observations to the project, and the PCD became well-known among Quetico circles. A lot of the contributions were made by members of QuietJourney, so I have to thank all of them.
