Here are some of my thoughts about canoe trip planning. Be sure to do this planning 2 or 3 weeks ahead of your trip.

1. Go to the national resource information center located at 900 Bay Street, to buy a Algonquin Park Canoe Trip Map.

2. Find a trip route according to your schedule. For first time campers (like me), I think 10KM a day is moderate. We spend about 3 or 4 hours to finish that distance. The most hard part during the trip is not the distance in water, but the distance in portage. We have two portages (one way), one is 240 meter, and the other is 590 meter.

3. List all your members and planning the vehicles. I think 4 persons one car is perfect. When doing this, remember that you will have a lot of gear with you. The park has a limitation on the numbers of persons each site. If you have more than 9 persons, they will ask you to book two sites, and of course will cost you more. We have 10 persons, and we have to book two sites, but in fact we only use one.

4. Call Algonquin Park to book the trip, camping site, and canoes. There are a few types of canoe, choose the lightest one that you could afford. The one we have is about $33/day, not including the life jacket. If you have vihicles to transfer canoes to your access point (one car can take two canoes, you need to rent 泡沫垫块), you can rent canoes on the way to Algonquin Park, and it's much cheeper.

5. Rent cars, if needed.
