I think it is better because there is nothing like it anywhere else in the region. It affords realative ease of access, beauty, relative solitude, the "pond hopping" experience, history and no motors. In addition, the outfitters are all excellent and close by. There are many other great places, but none offers all of these. It is a great intro to canoe camping and the Adirondacks.
