I am going on a trip in a few weeks with a friend from Montreal. Any suggestions for where we should go? I am open to Class 2 whitewater, big lakes or tidal rivers with lots of wind, and tiny rivers running through wetlands. Multi-day backcountry camping is mandatory, not camping near roads. Let's say within a five-hour drive of Montreal, preferably a bit less.
I have been to the Adirondacks and Algonquin and La Verendrye and would go back to either. I have often heard of the Gaspe Peninsula but know nothing about it (and I doubt it's within driving range). My friend has heard of La Mauricie but knows nothing about it. Any info? Other possibilities?

There you will find descriptions of trips in those areas.
Papineau La Belle is closer|

I've been there and enjoyed it. It was a reasonable drive from Montreal. I don't remember many details, except BEARS. There was a bear already occupying my assigned campsite as I approaced it from the water.

There are a zillion good places within 5 hours of Montreal, in any direction. Not to mention the pond in LaFontaine park.
