Trip Planning with ArcGIS Online

After the recent success of the trip to North Carolina and Georgia for the Total Solar Eclipse last month, I got excited about going on another trip with my friends to take part in an activity we love as a group, kayaking. I recently found out about Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota along the border with Canada, and as it is a mostly water bound park, I thought we could rent kayaks and go camping at islands and shore sites located around the park. I georeferenced the National Park Service park map in ArcGIS, digitized the campsites including what kind of campsite it is, its code, and the name.

I used the place where we usually kayak as the benchmark for timing and distance, estimating both, and using those to influence the later distances. You can see the story map with the proposals below.
