I would like to do a one- to two-week tour of smaller lakes in Ontario. The cost of gas is a consideration, given the size of Ontario.
Let's say you were starting from some place in New York State, like Watertown. What area of Ontario would you head to that's within 100 or so miles and has a variety of small lakes to choose from?
Any specific lakes to recommend? Looking for scenic, quiet/remote, good free camping. Not interested in large lakes or Georgian Bay.
I'm sort of familiar with the Adirondacks and am disappointed with how the area has changed over the years. So I'd like to explore beyond there and see something new.

Is there a difference between a "resident" and a "Canadian citizen"? I.e., if one is a Candian citizen but a U.S. resident, is a fee charged?
LaVerendrye or ZEC Kipawa|

LaVerendrye is a good option, you still will have to pay fee's but it's about the closest big park to Albany.

Frontenac definitely provides the small lakes and it's beautiful. Tons of deer the time we were there. As Kayakmedic mentioned though, it's probably better for smaller trips. It depends on how much you want to travel. You could circumnavigate the whole park in a week if you wanted to. One characteristic that could be a downside is that the campsites are in clusters of 4 sites with a shared outhouse. It's great for groups but might not have the privacy you want.
