Hello all,

Happy new year! A group of us are planning a winter camping trip this year (first weekend of Feb) and looking at possible routes. We have spent some time in the temagami area in the summer and wanted to try out the winter. We got the gear, just need a route. Can anyone suggest a route, within 2 hours drive from sudbury, that would be good to haul (snowshoe) in our gear, setup camp (need a marsh/bog with standing dead wood) and explore for a few days?

Our site/trip would ideally include:
-quiet, not too much sled traffic
-beautiful scenery (its temagami!)
-good enough trails that we can ski around in the day
-a bog/marsh/sheltered area where we can setup camp/collect burnable dead firewood
-possibly do some icefishing

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Blueberry Lake. Camp in the bay where the creek flows in from Dalton Lake. Great scenery, quiet lake, not too far from your car (5 km), hiking trails for snowshoeing and portage trails for skiing.

Another possibility, but this would have to be checked cause we did this a few years back- you could go to Smoothwater, stay a night in one of their remote cabins, use their trails and camp the extra nights. The trails link(ed) up Granite, Owaissa and Net Lakes. There are other trails as well I believe. Maybe you could make an arrangement to just camp, you'd have to ask.
Anyway we did 4 nites and saw no sleds.
