Horseshoe lake?

what's it like to camp there? I always just drive by on my way to Lows lake. Thought it might make an easy car camp spot. Are motorboats allowed there?

Thanks

I'll just take my Jetboil gas stove and not feel guilty. I don't like the noise and extra weight which is why I use a twig stove. I just boil water anyway and rarely have a campfire.

are twig stoves "campfires"?

Hi, I'm going to the Essex chain and I see campfires are forbidden. I always use a little twig stove everyplace else. Would that be OK?
Thanks, Turtle

another option

it's more fun paddling upstream on Quebec brook from the next road downstream. A couple of easy carrys and a real contrast when you get to the flow. I've done it both ways. Vegetation in the flow can...

All the rangers have been great to deal with. I always just spoke to them with respect as all law enforcement officers deserve.

bottom sitting

From a structural and stability point of view, sitting on the bottom of an ultralight/small canoe is superior to a high seat. Nesmuk proved that 150 years ago. I paddled my high seat 16# savage river...
