Hi everyone, at the risk of angering the Internets (because I've asked this elsewhere as well), here I go:
So this is for (please don't laugh) The canada day long weekend, Friday to Monday. I'm not that experienced, but have done this about a dozen times. The other 5-7 people in the group, pretty new to this.
What we're looking for:
* Access Point: No more than a 4-hour drive from Toronto; Outfitter or canoe delivery available;
* Route difficulty: easy to medium; No more than 6 hours of total travel and 1.5km of portaging
* Lake (where campsite is): *MUST* be scenic. I want some of that 'wow' factor. Killarney and Lake OSA are 'wow. North Tea is 'wow' (in a different way). So yes, wow! And a lake that's good for swimming (clear, not famous for leeches or algae)
* Campsite: looking to stay only in 1 campsite.
Large and flat enough to fit 3 tents.
Ideally relatively open and elevated with some breeze to keep the bugs away.
A sunny front (beach or flat rock) to enjoy the sun (Algonquin owes me this!) would be nice.
And relatively easy access to firewood
Of course a lot of sites are taken for the long-weekend. My fallback plan is North Tea, but this time on the west side in case the winds are too crazy.
PLEASE MAKE THE DECISION FOR ME. I WILL INVITE YOU TO A PINT IF WE EVER CROSS PATHS!
But in all seriousness, (a Canadian) apologies for asking this questions again, and thank you. I really do appreciate it.
