In addition to the RV camping, about every other year me & a buddy do some interior camping as well (Canisbay, Fork, Crotch & Basin lakes). Worst trip was to the north end of Opeongo. Not the the greatest weather for camping & the water was a big too "big" for my liking. Not in a canoe, just a 14 footer & nine & a half outboard. Still not fun.

I still love Algonquin Park for the hiking...not for the $46 they charge per night. We camped at Canisbay Lake which is, I think, the nicest campground in the park. I didn't realize that they didn't have a dump station there...nearest is 12 km east near the Pog Lake campground. Did not like towing that distance with full tanks!

Had you scouted the sites before you went to Canisbay? I was thru there last year scouting sites & some were nowhere near being level enough to camp on. They may have been tenting sites though.

BTW, that dump site & the 1 @ Rock Lake are the only 2 dumping stations on the Hwy' 60 Corridor.

Hadn't stayed there before...took a first come, first serve site that wasn't too bad. We've noted a number of real nice sites that may be reserved (if at all possible) should we ever camp there again.

True, Opeongo is big. I got wind bound there when I was heading home. The canoe couldn't handle the whitecaps on the main lake so I spent a night beside a small bay.
