One of the two remaining truck portages in the Boundary Waters continues to operate on the Canadian Border at Prairie Portage. During peak boating season a contractor uses four-wheel drive trucks and a trailer to pull boats over the U.S. side of the portage. Typically canoeists take the much shorter portage trail along the Canadian side of the border, which is not motorized.

Caution should be exercised when crossing the largest lakes of Map 4 in a canoe. The big open stretches of Basswood Lake can develop large, dangerous waves. Early morning is often the best time to cross these big areas. There is not a maintained portage between Moosecamp Lake and Fourtown Lake.

The back of all Voyageur maps contains a large, detailed finder map including a thorough index of Boundary Waters lakes. In addition, information about navigation in the Boundary Waters, safety, rules & regulations, basic entry point information, hiking opportunities, winter activities, fishing, and sources for further information is provided.

The overview map is a great asset for trip planning, but has been simplified to an extent that it is not suitable for navigation. In addition, campsite locations are not as carefully reviewed as those shown on the detailed fronts of each Voyageur map.
