I'm hoping someone will hit me with the "realistic bus" and help me out here! I would like to camp for 1 night on Lake Temagami on the long weekend of August (Sat. Aug.5) and I'm trying to figure out if I'll be able to find an available campsite. I'll be putting in at the end of the Temagami access road (just East of Temagami Island at 1:00pm latest (coming from Peterborough) and head north west towards Kokoko Bay. Is it likely that a campsite will still be available? I really want to avoid staying at Finlayson P.P.

Campsites should still be available especially if you portage over the 290m P into Kokoko Lake or go to Spawning Bay and portage there to get away from crowds and motor boats

Thanks otter_mel! From what I have read online, I was thinking of stopping at Temagami Island on the way back (Sun. Aug.6) to hike on the old growth trails - is it worth it?

The old growth trails on Temagami Island are definatley worth checking out.
Only takes a couple of hours to walk the trails.
Huge trees in there.

As Kim has said, the trails are certainly worth the effort.....bring your camera along. When we did the trails 3 years ago, we somehow missed a turn along the way completing the loop, and had to double back along the trail to our starting point. There are some nice campsites on Temagami Island too.
