I was just interested in putting notes on my waterproof maps. I figured a sharpie might bleed or run if I did and the map got wet.

I've tried many different things, including the one above, and I'm not a fan of it. The issue I found is that little pad slides around, particularly when you are popping the canoe up on your back...

Can't go wrong with either.

The island site on St Regis isn't all that spectacular... just sayin'... there are better sites on that pond, although I suspect they'll be relocated. DEC is moving...

There aren't many island sites in SRCA. On St Regis Pond there is and IIRC there is a facility.

I can't correctly identify which sites have them and which don't, and I haven't stayed at them all,...

Never been to either, but from the little I do know, La Ver is far, far larger, more remote and less popular. Algonquin is like a summer camp with lakes packed to capacity throughout the summer.

The few times I camped in there I did a lot of exploring, mostly off-trail, although there are actually a lot of trails. There's not a lot of mountains out there but there are a lot of small cliffs...

Technically I think you could get to any mountain around Lake George from the lake but I know for sure you can add Sleeping Beauty, Buck and Pilot Knob.

It's an easy hike, access is not an issue from Floodwood road, there are views, but they are limited and not necessarily all that interesting. WTBS, the summit area is large, rocky and craggy, and...
