On the other hand the portage between Mooselook... and Richardson is quite easy.
The NFCT built a nice dock at Richardson but it is more canoe friendly than kayak friendly, with a kayak I found it was to high to be of any use to me. Therefore I landed on the rocky shore and used drift wood and what not as rollers to drag the boat closer to shore.

You'll want to watch the water levels closely when you go on any of those lakes mentioned. The submerged rocks are not well rounded but rather quite sharp it is best not to get hung up on them, hugging the shoreline to closely can work against you... some of the rocks extend quite far out.
Richardson has some beautiful sandy beaches (depending again on water levels). All 3 lakes mentioned are quite beautiful. I am to be paddling that area again next week though the weather forecast looks pretty iffy.
