Does anyone know how many campsites are on McRae lake?

Also, are motor boats allowed?

there are dozens of campsites on the lake. I have seen motor boats on the lake but you have to portage them in and out. It won't be easy!

I assume you mean the falls between the pond beside the 400 put-in and McCrae Lake.
It's not meant to be paddled, one has a steep but short portage. If you wanna be scared, you could, I guess. Not sure "scared" of what, though. MAybe scared of the carrying, if the canoe is a bit of a pig.... :o

Erhard , could be the other spot too?

Sometimes the short portage between McRae and Georgian Bay is flowing
enough I've seen people bring boats down through that way....but it hasen't been me. It's been a while though.

We always carried through that place, but we would come from the Bay to enter McCrae. LOng ago, I remember paddling and poking our way up that short channel. The Bay's waterlevel was higher then, aided by a strong western wind and Bay and McCrae Lake were at about the same level. Today, with normal summer levels, I suppose the channel is too steep and rock-strewn to be paddlable downstream - or is it?
