I am off starting the end of April. I am thinking of doing a short canoe trip of a couple of days in May. Anyone have suggestions for it near Sudbury?

River trip or flat water?

Canoeing around Sudbury in May means you'd have to watch the ice conditions. In my experience the ice disappears progressively. I've seen the access to Opeongo jammed with ice in the first week of May, but on Rock Lake, just a few km. south, the ice existed only as candle ice in isolated patches. Most of the time, the whole area is ice free in the first week of May, but I'm not sure how far north that goes.

By May 2--4, the lakes are usually icefree.

Chiniguchi is an obvious choice if it's ice-free. For instance Matagamasi to Wolf or Kukagami to Donald (and Matagamasi), or Kukagami to Maskinonge.

Take a look at Southern and Middle Tracks. Wolf lake is the most popular destination.

Thank you.

Where is there places to park? Are there any fees?

Camping is free for Ontario residents. One can park for free at public landing on Matagamasi or for a fee at Kukagami lodge. Ottertooth site has detailed description with maps for these and some additional parking spots.
