I'm a displaced Algonquin Park tripper looking for 3 - 4 day flatwater canoe trips near the Ottawa area. Remote is good and long carries aren't a problem. I don't have alot of time to plan now therefore rely on established parks with set routes and sites. Anyone suggest a good spot where I can start looking? I'd really hate to lose my spring trip as it will be the only one for the year!!!

There's some La Verendrye information on this site in the 'Southern Quebec' section. Information including trip diaries on 4 loops in La Verendrye

In addition to those exellent trip diaries that Richard mentioned , you can also have a look at this site for contacting people from the park.

In addition to La Verendrye, you could try Reserve Faunique St. Maurice (I've passed on Mauricie Nat'l Park because they don't allow campfires). But Verendrye is much larger and offers more variety than St. Maurice.

Other than Verendrye, though, does anyone know of any other great flatwater options, maybe a little further north?

There are a number of short routes in
Papineau Labelle which is quite close to
Ottawa and Montreal. Not as "remote" as
La-Verendrye.

Thanks - but I'm looking for more remote, not less . . .
