Perfect Camping in Quetico Provincial Park


It was a beautiful morning to canoe on the lake in Quetico Provincial Park in Northern Ontario.

We paddled toward the small river on the glassy water.

We paddled to the small river to do a little fishing. The warm sun and the stillness was perfect

a duck noticed us and took off with great splashing and flapping of wings

a loon was fishing in the still water.

There were a couple of turtles basking in the late summer sun. Can you see the third turtle?

on the way back to the campsite, we came upon another loon. It was shaking its foot. I wonder if he had something stuck to it?

When we returned to our campsite, we spent the rest of the day relaxing in the water on our private sandy beach. I recommend campsite 18 or 20 for perfection in camping and canoeing.

The park is on the US and Canadian border northwest of Lake Superior.

  2. Thanks for linking my blog entry “Hijacked City-Boy”. Wish I could have come out of the experience a little more in love with nature – because it was so beautiful, as your pictures here attest. Maybe next time, the pain will be less and the joy of the place will become more prominent. We’ll see. :)
