I've spent some time in the Georgian Bay. We did about 70 miles over 5 days from Lion's Head, Ontario to Tobermory, Ontario along the east coast of the Bruce Peninsula. Some of the sites are reservable by permit, some are not. Amazing scenery, cool platform camp sites and not many people for miles.
We also did the Mink and McCoy Island chain along the eastern side of the bay near Parry Sound. the chain sits about 5 miles off shore. Launched from Snug Harbor, paddled north past Franklin Island and then along the island chain north to south. We completed the loop by staying on Franklin Island our last night before heading back to Snug Harbor. Camping in the island chain is open crown land. No permits, no fee's.
