It has fallen upon me to pick a spot to go canoe camping on the weekend of the 23rd to 24th of July 2022.

Crown Land always preferred due to low finances. To be fair, it should be the about same distance from Perth Ontario as from Sudbury Ontario.

We prefer the peace and solitude of undisturbed nature, not lots of nearby neighbours. A portage or two to keep the motorboats out is fine, but not half a dozen; it's a canoe trip, not a hiking-with-a-canoe-and-pack-on-your-back trip. We will need room for two small tents, prefer not to camp on on a bramble patch 'cause all the spots were taken.

Help me out with a few suggestions!
Thanks,

Crown land spots are too valuable to share unfortunately. No one wants their spot getting blown up!

Perhaps somewhere on the Mattawa River? Parking at Samuel de Champlain or further upstream at Pimisi Bay are options. Pretty easy paddling either direction on the Mattawa, great bedrock camping and some decent fishing. Get yourself a copy of the Mattawa River Heritage map and it’s all laid out for you.

The non operating Noganosh Park is close to equidistant. It is kinda busy on weekends, but just a couple is easy carries gets you into Smoky Lake from Ess Narrows on Hwy 522.
