Several friends and I are planning to do a camping trip end of this month. Either leaving on the 26th or 27th for 2 or 3 nights. We are really just beginners at camping, and it was my first time last year when we did the same (end of April) at Cyprus Lake. Last year the lack of proper cold-weather sleeping bags for 2 of us led us on the road southbound until we ended up at a motel at Lion's Head for our second night -- which turned out to be an awesome place too!
We are mainly looking for good hiking trails and awesome views of mother nature; we have narrowed it down to either Killarney or Algonquin. We are leaning more towards Killarney now, but making a trip there means we MUST go to the Silver Peak which requires canoeing. Would the lakes be suitable for canoeing (beginners too) by then? How wet should we expect to get? We will be renting the canoes from the outfitters nearby.
So a slew of questions here..
Any other advice for us? Other locations maybe? How are Walmart's/Canadian Tire's sleeping bags? If we rent a heated Yurt, would summer sleeping bags be enough?
