Canoe Lake

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 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.
