I camped several times and canoed once, not much experience you see. I don't know if ever paddled wood boat before, canoe is much easier and faster. you can start racing on the lake after half hour in a good day. I've camped at Huntsville area in the middle of the summer and it's chill during the night. but it's not nuch different in Toronto, like today's weather in Algonquin Park , High 28C Low 11C.
