First time poster.
I would appreciate some advice on a short three day trip winding up in the South Arm. Looks like a few choices:
A. Mine Road access - Shining Wood Bay - Olier, Denedus and Wasaksina Lakes - Portage into Cross Lake and out to South Arm.
B. Town site (we are using Temagami Outfitters, I hope) - some small annoying portages into Iceland Lake and then Driftwood Lake to Wasaksina, etc.
Thanks to all who respond. Open to other suggestions as well but we do have to wind up in the South Arm.

If you are starting at the end of the Northeast Arm you don't have a lot of choices. There are far more people on Lake Temagami, so if you are looking for a little quiet, or something quieter, heading through Iceland is your best bet.

If it's just a short 3 day trip, I would not start at the town site (Temagami) but at the Mine landing (or Manitou Landing ) to save a lot of paddling (15 miles of Northeast Arm). With the time you have, why not just paddle on Lake Temagami and doing the Temagami Island trail and then continue down to South Arm. You don't say where in the South Arm you're going, just that you have to end up there. There are many sites and bays you could explore along the way.

If you are renting from Dean at Temagami Outfitters he could also run you somewhere on the lake to save you some time to expore other things. As the new owner of Temagami Outfitters he is offering a water taxi service and I believe his rate is $10 a mile for his Stanley 150HP "barge".

Temagami outfitters charges 12 per mile and gives very good service.

I would go with your Option A. Nice little trip. The fishing is pretty good and the campsites too. That's probably the best direction to take too given the wind can blow hard south and west on Temagami. High rock is a nice short climb and lookout at the entrance to shiningwood bay.
