That's true the Achray gate is likely to be closed. However, it's gated 1000 or 1600 meters from the Achray campground. 5000m - 6000m is from the Baron Canyon road, which soon as the snow falls becomes the access point as the park stops maintaining roads on that side. Since the loggers have no reason to plow it becomes snow bound.

Oops, I was trying to say 500m!

lol PA.. yes you have!

Great guess Doug, it does resemble Osler from that portage. Not there, though.

There are no campsites on this lake.

Last season I went in access #4 Rain Lake in November for a little solo kayak trip. I called the park office, not ontario parks, on my way and they gave me a permit # to write on a piece of paper and leave on my dashboard. Not sure if I even needed it, but it's not too expensive. I doubt they were checking permits. I am planning on doing the same thing tomorrow morning.

Have you considered Stratton or St Andrews? Both could offer nice scenery if the leaves are good.

Sec is nice, so is Traverse.

Since the Achray campground is now closed and the gate is presumably locked you would have perhaps a 5000m portage just to get to the launch point on Grand Lake.  Travers is a pretty nice lake and would not involve any portaging.  The lake was pretty quiet when we were there for Thanksgiving weekend and I would expect even less activity this weekend.

Hey Drew, Looking forward to reading it.. I'm just heading to Kiosk right now for the day, so I'll check it out when I get back.

I've been aching to do a trip into both Booth and Shirley Lakes.. I was thinking about doing it this weekend, but I could always head somewhere else this weekend and save Shall for a later date. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Hi All,

I've got a new report up over at All of Algonquin. This covers the rest of my trip to the Barron Canyon area back in September and means I'm all caught up on posting reports. Hopefully I've got one more trip in front of me before the snow falls (anyone heading to the Shall Lake access point in the next couple of weeks?)

Is it the Osler to Nadine portage - Looking into Osler?

i know nothing about fishing as well, but I would suggest possibly scratching Smith as the sites are mediocre. Beginning of McManus and top of Whitson has nicer options, albeit mostly north facing.
