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 45 trip logs and 150 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!
Crow River Loop – My most recent trip was a three night loop out of Opeongo that took me through Proulx, the Crow River, Lavielle, Dickson, the longest portage in the park and a couple of amazing sunsets. Read about it here!
