i am re-locating to the mentioned area and would like to know some opinions if you can? I will be in the Scotch Village/Windsor area and enjoy river paddling and inland lakes mostly in a smallish (13-14 foot kayak). I do some over night stuff but mostly day paddles. What else is being used out there and where is it available i.e. store in that area?

Panuke lake off off a uke road in windsor is the longest lake in Nova scotia I believe and about a 5-7. Hour paddle to the end and it gets fairly remote - its a beautiful lake. There is also kayaking options under the damn as well you can access off of salmon hope dam road.

If you want even more remote five mile lake near ellerhouse is another big lake withit wot of traffic and fairly remote.

Card lake (card lake provincial park) is a small lake that you can spend a day on- no motor boat traffic and no cottages at the end of the lake it's a very beautiful paddle. If water levels are low lots of sandy beach areas a (lots of leeches if you plan to swim)

I have canoed I keji and done wilderness canoeing in Algonquin park and trust me the above lakes are as remote as you can get in the windsor area and worth the paddle!

Hi Jerry,
I also just moved to Windsor. I also suggest Old Creel. Great place. I am looking into spots to canoe around Winsdor as I am mostly familiar with the Halifax/Prospect area. Maybe we can meet up after the thaw and explore together? My wife and I ususally do a few multi day trips but we have a new baby so I'm looking at a few solo day trips.
I'll try to send a pm.
