General Comments

The MNR route description details a 42 km trip from Baysville to Bracebridge. The only designated campsites on crown land are a quarter of the way down the river, so it is extremely difficult to paddle the route as described (unless you want to paddle a 30 km second day).
This route description is based on that in "Cottage Country Canoe Routes" by Kevin Callan and involves paddling down to the crown land campsites and then paddling back upstream to Baysville
