August 28-29, 2011, Bon Echo, Joeperry Lake


My first solo overnight kayak trip! I stayed at site 503 on Joeperry Lake and learned the following:

  • Use two trips when portaging a kayak.  I used the 500 meter trail from the parking lot to the lake to see what it was like to portage my kayak while also carrying all of my gear. I did it and I will never do it again!
  • Interior camping is so cheap! Interior sites at Bon Echo are only $10 a night, compared to a minimum of $30 for a car site.
