Trip Reports, Campsite Reviews & More

Welcome to All of Algonquin. My goal is to make it to each of Algonquin’s canoe route accessible lakes, and I’m getting there! Since starting this project in 2016 I’ve visited 309 (as of the end of the 2022 paddling season) of the 530 lakes on my list. As much as I love paddling, I also love writing. I’ve been writing trip reports and campsite reviews along the way, and collecting them here. At this point, I’ve got over 50 trip logs and ~200 campsite reviews from around the Park (and counting). My hope is that you’ll find some useful information here for planning your own trips. If not that, I can guarantee you’ll find some great examples of what not to do while you’re out there. Thanks for stopping by!

Birchcliffe, The Nip & Some Hills – 2023 started out with a bang. This six day trip took me out of Kiosk and down through some parts of the Park that have been on my list for a long time.  Read about it here!

Gear is great! Without gear you’d just be sleeping in the dirt. Which, I guess works for some folks. For everyone else, here are my thoughts on the various pieces of gear I use in the backcountry.

The Thunderbox is a monthly newsletter on all thing Algonquin that have caught my eye. Each issue includes a spotlight lake, gear review, recent campsite reports, links to Algonquin content & more!
