We decided to go into Burnt Island Lake this year in Algonquin Park. You have to leave from Canoe Lake which is a big and very busy lake. We are heading out from here. If I remember correctly, we went from Canoe Lake – Joe Lake – Little Joe Lake – Lost Joe Lake – Baby Joe Lake and into Burnt Island Lake. Obviously someone with no imagination named these lakes !

We went to Birdie Lake, Alder Lake and Iris Lake
We stayed a few nights on Burnt Island and our last night we did a partial paddle/portage back to Joe Lake area for a break. Only one night there and then back to where we had our cars parked. We didn’t see a lot of wildlife this trip but we still enjoyed it. I love the peacefulness and lack of people out here. It’s my happy place where I can truly relax and have no worries. Well I’m a stressed out woman so I guess I still have SOME worries lol. Having said that, Canoe Lake is a very busy lake, lots of people but we still enjoy it.
