So it does get much more expensive than Boundary Waters

Expected travel is about 10 miles a day. Once you get your permit for your lakes you are bound to it. In case of illness or mishap the rangers are supposed to be understanding.

But I have soloed there for a dozen times and never had trouble keeping to the permit. The East side of the park by Brent is some five hours by car away from the popular Canoe Lake starting point. A route that has a long portage usually gets you away from the crowds. I like the Rain Lake area but usually go to Kiosk cause its closer to me and being farther from Toronto is less crowded.

Friends of Algonquin sell a cheap paper map that should do for you .Covers the whole park for five bucks. Its got campsites and portages marked. Note on Jeff Mc Murties map that there are two colors of portages.. The black are not maintained. You can get lots of seclusion from using them.

No advice on fishing as I don't fish.
