Algonquin Park Camping Feels like Coming Home

Have you ever returned to a favourite campsite and felt like it was like coming home ? For over 20 years I have been  leading canoe trips and camping all over Algonquin Park . Some campsites  are really special and feel like home to me.   I love the solitude, intimacy  and quiet of Algonquin Park's backcountry lakes. The campsites are really stunning. 

This past week , I was out on a canoe trip   back  to an old stomping ground and had the opportunity  to camp at one of my favourite  beach campsites. It had been years since I had been on this route.   The wind was howling  and we  spent a wonderful afternoon  swimming, sailing and cooking up a storm. 
Memories of past trips, of friends who have shared the site with  me , the good times we have on  the trail- these memories always come back when I am sitting by the fire at  a favourite campsite.
