Camping at Quetico

The Quetico Provincial Park is a large (1.8 million Acres) wilderness park in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. Or at least that is what Wikipedia says.

My roomie and I had a couple days off and wanted to camp somewhere new. Both of us are hobbyist kayak-ers and the Quetico is nothing but water; well and a few trees. The only campground in the park is about 2 hours away. Otherwise you can camp back country. We packed our gear and headed out. This was our farthest trip into Canada we have done.

While we were hopeful for wildlife sighting the road to the campground is rather dull. Our site, my roomie picked out, was amazing. We had views of the lake but no access. However, about 100 yards way was a small beach where we could launch. The site itself was large and I couldĀ park the truck and tent and have room for more. We kayaked a few times making our way down little rivulets and enjoyed the warm days. It was relaxing, even with rain through the night. All too soon we came home to reality and kitties.
