Kevin Callan's "A Paddler's Guide to Quetico and Beyond"
This is a guide to Northwestern Ontario's "Canoe Country" - Ontario's Quetico Provinical Park which adjoins Wisconsin's Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and includes detailed route descriptions, maps showing all access points, important river features and accurate portage lengths.
Located west of Lake Superior on the Canada-U.S. border, Quetico Provincial Park is Ontario's second-largest wilderness park and sports a myriad of routes and trips that span from weekend recreational paddles to 10-day multi-lake loops, with something for every skill level in between. One could spend a lifetime paddling the waters of Quetico Provincial Park, with its more than 600 lakes and five major rivers - and with an average portage length of only 400 metres, it's all about the paddling at Quetico.
