Quetico Provincial Park in Canada allows no motors and Lake Kawnipi is almost directly in the center of the park; therefore, it is a difficult lake to get to. No matter which way one enters the park it is about a 25-30 rugged canoe trip into Kawnipi.
It is worth the struggle. Each time I have camped here it results in fresh caught northern pike, walleye, and smallmouth bass combined with days of rarely seeing another human being. We usually see more bald eagles then people once we paddle the crystalline waters of Kawnipi. Water so clear it can be enjoyed without treatment.
Lake Kawnipi is an immense lake that stretches over ten miles long and has numerous large bays branching out from the center. Every time I see a list of top ten most beautiful lakes I laugh when I see that Kawnipi has not been included. Due to its remoteness only a lucky few understand its haunting beauty. I am glad to be one of those and cannot wait to set out on another adventure in just a couple weeks.
