Canoe Lake Loop

I have been planning a trip to Algonquin for the the second week in May. We are about to book our route but I am having a hard time finding the name of one of the lake/ponds we need to get through. We are doing a loop that starts and ends at canoe lake. The part that I am unsure about is the lake/pond that lies between Treefrog Lake and Jay Lake. If anyone can help me that would be fantastic.

ought to be easy to find

It does not seem to have a name. If you are worried about finding the portage it really doesn't matter

Just find the creek and scan the north shore.110 meters is short and easily confirms you have arrived at "Lake You"

Its a straight forward series of portages, one will lead you to the next. The pond you are wondering about is just a little pool surrounded by muddy edges... you won't be in the water long enough to worry about its name before you hit the next portage on the other side =)

My advice to you is to do the loop from Burnt Island to Sunbeam Lake to Tom Thomson. The portages (IMHO) work better in your favour that way then vice versa.

when booking a trip you need to name only lakes/rivers you are camping on overnight. Park won't ask for lakes you are going to paddle.

I did the loop 00cp mentioned last August. If I remember correctly you should be able to see the portage sign from across the lake. I think that might have been the lake with the soy sauce colored water that we were trying to not step in.

It's kind of late - by now you might have found it by yourself, but anyway: portage sign calls it Kooey pond.
