From looking at the map, here are 3 spots that I think might be o.k.
1. Mill Lake, Parry Sound
2. Lagoon Road in/near Woods
3. Ba Sa Gim Road in/near Shawanaga
any opinions on these spots, or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Killarney is off hwy 69 a bit and not far outside of Sudbury. It is is a beautiful provincial park with great views and nice hiking trails as well as a places to swim. It has beautiful views of the La Cloche mountains. The Granite Ridge Trail is only 2 km and has great views of the mountains.

2Hi, thanks for you reply. Killarney would be too far off of our route . Looking for something just off of the highway. Only want to stop for an hour at the most. We may hit Killarney after leaving Fairbank, on our way to Algonquin. Anything else for me? gracias.

3Good info from that link, Aimee - saw a couple of other possibilities there. We love Killbear - we go about every other year. Have you been to Fairbabk P.P.?

4I grew up in North Bay and lived in Sudbury for a couple of years but I don't think I have been to Fairbank Provincial Park unless I went with my family as a kid and don't remember. I have friends that enjoy it and plan to go someday! It sounds like a nice place. Is this your first time going there?

5It will be our 1st time there. The thing that attracted me to it was the fact that the lake is supposed to be very clear for snorkelling, etc. Website says that the lake is a crater created by a meteorite strike millions of years ago. We're going there for a few nights and then to Pog Lake in Algonquin - our 1st time there, also. Coming from Amherstburg, Ont. - a bit of a long haul, but I'm sure it will be worth it. You're fortunate to live up there!

Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
