Georgian Bay Posted by: old_user on Sep-28-10 8:09 AM (EST)
I live in Northern Ontario and have kayaked a lot and done several multi day trips here. If you are willing to get a bit further north and west...meaning north of the French River area and the crowds of cottagers boaters and Toronto people I recommend a few areas and you can check them out on the web and google earth.
1. Philip Edward Island accessed from Killarney is an excellent trip with beautiful scenery and lots of camp sites. You pay a daily fee as it is accessed from Killarney Provincial Park.
2. Further west along the north shore of the North Channel separating Manitoulin Island from the main land off of highway 17.
You can literally put a kayak in the water at Whitefish Falls on Highway 6 south of a town called Espanola on hwy 17 and paddle 100 miles in among hundreds of islands, opens areas and spectacular scenery. Although there are cottages near Whitefish Falls there are many thet are crown land and can be used. Check out web pages on the Benjamin Islands (very popular in summer) the Whales Back Channel and the Turnbull Islands. I have done day and multi day trips to all these areas and even in summer you can feel quite isolated.
