If you 1-time the .8-mile carry, there wouldn't be much time difference vs. paddling. It's been a few years since I did the Little Tupper to Lila route (with 5 carries), but the .8-mile trail wasn't...

Did you go? I've stayed at the Hungry Bay lean-to (#81?). It's a great site; lean-to + room for several tents.

Found Flashlight

While camping on Lake Lila last weekend (October 20-23) I found a flashlight on the ground near my tent. Tell me what site & describe the light. Otherwise, I've added another "torch" to my...

Just back from 3 nights on Lila. That was maybe my 6th paddle trip there; double carried all but once when my friend wanted to bring her kayak. For that trip we used our carts (I switched to my sea...

Great points there. I used my 2-pole Eureka 3-season tent for most of my winter camping. Now, for my solo 3-season trips, I use an ultralight Big Agnes solo with a wishbone tent pole, but that...

Very comfy, David! :thumbs: The best I can do is my big old tent (similar to yours) and a propane catalytic heater.

"in a few weeks" - Note that the north country lakes start freezing in November. I've camped in mid-November a couple times; it's fun to deal with the beginnings of winter on those lakes. Rivers...

Four of us will head up to Little Tupper this weekend (15-17). Haven't been camping much this year, so I'm looking forward to this, even if it's cold and past-peak.
Although I've camped there a few...

Great set of photos! I've heard that there is a herd path up St. Regis from Ochre Pond (or was it Fish Pond?), but I haven't searched for it. Four of us will probably head up to Little Tupper on the...

Beautiful photos; it's been a busy summer here in Buffalo, and I just haven't been up there enough. Will be going in 2 weeks for what will likely be my final paddle trip of the year. Thanks for...

I've done the up & back a couple times, as well as the Lows-Os traverse a few times. All were with a solo canoe, except for 3 weeks ago - my GF and I launched at "inlet" and paddled up to a campsite...

I use a yoke with curved shoulder pads on my Wenonah Wilderness solo; the yoke clamps onto the gunwales. Works fine for me, and is comfortable.

It's a rough trail that we found it difficult with loaded kayaks. I'd rather just carry my gear.

All the sites have plenty of trees! Saranac Islands are a NYS Campground where you pay to reserve a specific site. If you camp in other areas of lake country where the sites are free, you can choose...

The lock keeper will lock your canoe or kayak through, but the carry isn't bad (unless you're in a loaded kayak).

Thanks, David. We'd like to do a couple trips before the season ends, so I'm looking to buy in August.

I appreciate your confidence and I do like the way a well-maintained stripper canoe looks, but I'm a procrastinator who never seems to finish big projects. I have leads on 2 or 3 Kevlar tandems for...
