I've been to the Adirondacks plenty of times while seein few to no other paddlers. And I haven't even made it to St. Regis yet!
A couple of the best ways to have an isolated, remote experience are:
1) Plan on a portage or two...portages tend to weed out a lot of people that just don't want the hassle.
2) Plan a trip when people ain't there: Just after ice-out to Memorial Day (late May) is a good time, as is mid-September to late October.
Do those two things while avoiding the most popular destinations (Lowe's Lake, Little Tupper, Lake Lila for a few) and you generally have a good recipe for a quiet experience.
