Hi everyone- do people have favourite paddle-in sites on Canisbay?

Surprisingly nothing on the PCI!

Thanks in advance.

I have camped often on Canisbay padddle-in sites.  Other than the point site on the RH shoreline, the others are quite good.  From the lake you will see a wide open space on the RH shoreline which is one of my fav sites.  Right next door to it is another great site with a small lagoon in the back of it for good moose viewing.  I was there last year and had a daddy and momma moose walked past my site in the water along the shoreline,,,,,only 15 ft. away from where I was sitting on my chair near the lake.  To be honest I froze and just wished they would pass quickly, but daddy moose decided to stop and check me out which seemed like an eternity, but probably was only about 10 seconds..  I knew moose were close by as my neighbours on the site with the pond in the back came to my site the day before and told me to come and see some moose in the pond.  There was a daddy, momma and baby moose eating a bunch of lilies.  My neighbours left the next morning and that afternoon I had my adventure with the moose, other than the baby one.

So I do know that these two sites were good for moose viewing.  Nice flat areas for your tent(s) and shallow sandy/pebbly shoreline. Also a few good sites further on down the RH shoreline.  I don't know much about the ones on the LH shoreline.

I had a question about McManus lake campsites 1, 2, 3, 4 ... (as per the PCI map on this site)

Would anyone know if any have decent swimming in front of the site ?  Sandy bottom ?  In addition all the sites look like a short paddle from the put in ... I have a novice paddler in a kayak coming along so I cant paddle too far.  Is it safe to say that those sites would be a short paddle ... very little current (I know its technically a lake but its also part of the river)... ?

One last question ...  .. for the High Falls slide ... I assume theres no issue this time of year with low water ?

Thanks 

I have camped on site #3 and it is a sandy beach site with good swimming.  It is quite shallow to begin with.  It is about a 10 minute paddle to this site.   I haven't camped on any of the other sites.  I have no info on the High 
Falls slide.

FOAP map says to use Spruce Bog parking lot when you are going to Norway Lake.

That is what I did the last time I went to Norway.  I have seen others unload their car on the highway at the creek and then park in the Spruce Bog parking lot.

My 5 fav sites on Dickson....

1.  First site to your left after doing the long portage.

2.  Small island in front of 1  above.

3.  Island campsite to your right heading for Cisco Bay.

4. Campsite on the left on the point of the narrows to Cisco Bay.

5.  Island campsite in Cisco Bay.

Of these 5 sites my favorite is 1 (flat and spacious) followed by 4.

The only reservation I have left now starts on June 28th.  Surely this one will not get cancelled.  Celebrating Canada Day in AP is a ritual of mine.

I read the article AL posted.

I read if 75% have been vaccinated once PLUS 20% have been vaccinated twice, then camping may be possible.

I stayed on Kenneth years ago.  I remember the site being flat with easy access to the water.  Back then there was only 1 site on Kenneth.  Now I believe there are at least 2.  I stayed on the campsite at end of portage when you reach the lake.

I would certainly recommend it for your last night.

I found out this morning, May 4th, that Frankie passed away after a long bout with cancer.

He will be sadly missed.

Too bad I cannot go.  However I have seen photos of trout caught by people who could go.

Did you know there was an Opeongo Campground back in the 1970s?

Thanks for the good read Peek.  It brought back many memories as I have been on every lake, creek and river you were on except for Devine and Stag.

Question:  Eating bacon on Day 8....real or fake bacon?

Also, one of your last photos mentioned looking SE towards Longer Lake....I'm sure you meant Longbow.

Again, thanks for the memories.
