I would like to do a one- to two-week tour of smaller lakes in Ontario. The cost of gas is a consideration, given the size of Ontario.
Let's say you were starting from some place in New York State, like Watertown. What area of Ontario would you head to that's within 100 or so miles and has a variety of small lakes to choose from?
Any specific lakes to recommend? Looking for scenic, quiet/remote, good free camping. Not interested in large lakes or Georgian Bay.
I'm sort of familiar with the Adirondacks and am disappointed with how the area has changed over the years. So I'd like to explore beyond there and see something new.
