Just a quick followup. In short, Algonquin was superb. What a gem. I only had four days and three nights, but I am sure I will be back for more. I rented all my gear from a well known local outfitter, and I found their service outstanding. Getting my gear to the starting point was a snap. The canoeing, the fishing, the camping and all else over the next few days was better than I had ever imagined. Wish I'd live closer.
