Low's Canoe Camping Trip

Not a whole heck to report other than that my daughter & I had a great time being together & exploring an area we had not yet visited in 20 years of camping in the ADK's. We paddled approx. 8 miles into site #40, from the lower dam put-in, as our 1st choice of #18 was taken. It was getting a bit late so we went with a site that we knew was available rather than continuing to search out a vacant site. We swam, fished w/minimal luck, paddled & explored while updating each other on our lives. While these trips are always memorable they grow more special now than ever since she moved out 2 years ago.

Sounds like a great trip. Lows is a very nice area to stay if you don't mind the long paddle from the put-in. Did you see/hear any bears?

No bears by us but there were reports of a nuisance bear @ site #28 & signs all over by #26 & #27. Fortunately we had a bear canister so that may have helped.

While I was at the scout camp on Lowes a few years ago, I asked Greg, the caretaker: "If you are having trouble with bears here in camp does that mean the campers around Lowes Lake are also having problems with them?" To which he replied with a sly grin on his face: "Oh yeah!"

In all my travels throughout the Adirondacks, I once saw a bear at the Brown Tract campground...the other 3 (different sightings) I saw on the road that goes to the scout camp on Lowes. What does that tell you?!!

I really like the bear canister. It can be a PITA when backpacking sometimes but overall I think they are well worth the extra effort.
