Lac Poisson Blanc has consistently been the top google search for this Web site throughout the entire summer. There seems to be very little information available on the Web, and to be honest it's so beautiful, I am reluctant to share it with you. This spot really should be kept a secret.
Lac Poisson Blanc is approximately a 45 min drive outside of Ottawa. It's crown land so you don't actually have to pay to camp, but you will need a canoe to get to your site. Canoes can be rented from Camp Air Eau Bois or you can pay to park if you have your own. There are many private campsites available; to find one you either need to get there early enough on the weekend, or be prepared to paddle for several hours.
Aaron and I arrived at noon on Saturday and it took us 2 trips up and down a long flight of stairs to overload our tippy canoe. It was 1:00pm by the time we were ready to depart. This was after some discussion over who would steer the canoe. Both of us being inexperienced paddlers I knew it was going be a long ride. But we had made it to Africa, I was quite certain we could handle a little canoe trip too. We zig-zagged our way across the water, and we paddled, and paddled, and paddled some more. By 5:00pm we managed to meet up with the rest of our group who had set up camp on a long stretch of beach. It was well worth the 4-hour canoe ride. My butt hurts today, my arms are tired and sore, I'm a little sun burnt, but I couldn't think of a better way to spend the last long weekend of the summer.
