Wonderful experience on the canoe! We did the whole loop from Tupper Lake and back. Highly recommended. Watch out for the bugs in late spring/early summer. Camp along the larger lakes where it's windy and less likely to be bug-infested.

We did this as a 3 day 2 night trip. We put in on the east side of Lake Lila and paddled across to the lean to for the first night. We did all of our portaging the second morning and stayed in one of the lean tos in grassy pond the second night. We planned on staying a third night near the lower dam but no sites were available. We were able to paddle out before sunset. Excellent trip!
