Algonquin Park, Ontario - Summer 2005
Algonquin Provincial Park
By canoe we explored the lesser traveled Northwest corner of Algonquin Park. We were treated to lovely weather and beautiful scenery and didn't have to fight the crowds that are sometimes present in other areas of the park. Only 3.5 hours from Toronto and you are in a paddling paradise!
Brent Vredevoogd, co-founder of Paddling.net, and his wife Chris joined guide Tom along with four other paddlers for this five-day trip. We had two Grummans and a Mad River Canoe, Tom paddled a solo canoe of unknown origins.
We started at the Canadian Wilderness Trips base camp near Access Point # 1 (Lake Kawawaymog or Round Lake) in the Northwest Corner of the Park. We made camp on North Tea Lake and Biggar Lake before returning back to base camp.
Outfitting and guides provided by Canadian Wilderness Trips.
Please consider planning a trip with Paddling Ontario as they not only helped make this trip possible but help make Paddling.net possible!
