Maine Coast does not require permits

The Everglades does, but you pick it up at the start of your trip.
The Big Bend of FL does..get it early
North Shore of Superior does not..except for Lake Superior Provincial Park and Pukaskwa NP and you just pick it up when you arrive.
Lac Manicougan does not.. I can think of tons of trips that can be taken in North America that pass through what is more wilderness feel than the BWCA
You might consider long big rivers like the Yukon..again ideal for a kayak and certainly little populated.
Your chief impediment for real wilderness tripping as in the Artic is flying your kayak to/from your starting point as there often are no roads.
As you have been to the BWCA, why not move up to Lake of the Woods or Lake Nipigon?
