Thank you Packsack for another amazing trip! Started with the 2 of us coming up here, then our kids, and now grandkids!  Amazing weather we had all week as well as fishing. Did an overnight portage into Basswood and had the perfect night. The kids had fun on the canoe & kayak. Most of all just being togther on beautiful Fall Lake as a family. Don't be sad vacation is over, be happy it happened! :) Thanks again Packsack!

"I came up here not to fish, but rather to find rest & relaxation.  And I was delighted!! 

The North woods does not disappoint. It breathed new life into me so that I  can go back and live among my tribe again. This is a beautiful treasure!  I am truly grateful to have experienced it."

"Well it's been another great week up north, & were sad to leave. Caught lots of fish, had a days adventure over on Newton Lake, & saw lots of wildlife. 

Love the view from this little cabin!  Nick & Danielle are doing a great job so far & we've enjoyed getting to know them- such hard workers!

We'll take the beauty of this place home to Iowa with us & look forward to next year. We'll also take plenty of fish home!

Highlight: Jane's two and a half pound smallie, caught in Newton Lake just off the Falls- what fun!

"We had a great time staying here at Packsacck. Fishing and weather were a little off.  The cabin was great!  We were treated very well and everyone took good care of us. Thanks for the cookies also!"

"Thanks for helping us have a great time! Everything was in order as expected. Fishing in Jackfish was good-had to work for them. The short-cut through Hidden Bay was full of adventure and the biggest Beaver hut we have ever seen. Too bad all good things must end, and now we have to go back to work ourselves. Thanks again to our new found friends, the Otts."
