Why don't you then go to Maple Mountain and climb it since you're going to be in Suckergut anyway, it's not that much further?

Hobart Lake has a nice one but the one on Tupper Lake can serve as well and it's across from the trailhead to the top. Go for a refreshing swimm and a cool drink from the little lake halfway up.

Did Mowat to Sucker Gut last year, be prepared for big water.

First site on LE narrows after the dunes is ok. No facilities. Room for 1 tent only. Go around the corner for a nice beach landing.

Preacher's Point(?) just before LE narrows to Sucker Gut is a nice site. Had hypothermia there.

Island on Sucker Gut near Frank's Falls is ok, not great facilities and no shelter. Plenty of room to play frisbee.

thanks for the advice folks. we paddled temagami both ways a few years ago and lucked out with wind. going in it was mostly calm and hot as hell.
