I would be interested is seening coverage of the Turtle River/White Otter area, north of Quetico.  I believe the park office used to put out a map of this area, but I don't belive it is available any longer.

Was interested to see Killarney. Its a destination I'm looking at now. Have only just started to research. French River PP seems like a place without much attention do far - kind of newish park.

Looking at your list, and having moved to Adirondacks, I have found a lot of resources for paddling here. Also, its much more linear - not a lot of options but follow the river or water trail.

[quote=Chris Hoepker;11117]I've had my eye on Wabakimi for years and would like to see it added.[/quote]

The biggest problem with Wabakimi is lack of portage information. The info that I can get from the Ontario government is just downright bad - at least the last time I looked, maybe I should look again. I know Friends of Wabakimi have good portage info, but I don't know if they would be willing to share.

Any updates on this idea? I'd love to see Wabakimi added.

I'm still trying to get the data. It's a tough one to find.

I have been asked a few times in the last couple of weeks how to get new areas on the website. Some areas are easier to get data than others, and the larger areas are harder to create the route finder, so the time required to add an area varies. However, I'm always open to suggestions. If I can get the data, I can add it. These are the areas that have been suggested to me so far:

  • Temagami (Ontario)
  • Killarney (Ontario)
  • Isle Royale (Michigan)
  • Apostle Islands (Wisconsin)
  • St Regis Canoe Area & Adirondacks (New York)
  • Northern Forest Canoe Trail (Maine to New York)
  • Mississippi River (Minnesota to Louisiana) - this would be quite a project
  • Minnesota Water Trails

These are areas that I've researched but haven't been suggested yet. Is there anyone that would like to see these added?


  • Allagash Wilderness Waterway (Maine)
  • Wabakimi (Ontario) - might be hard to get data for this area, though
  • Kenai Wildlife Refuge (Alaska)
  • La Verendrye (Quebec)

Anybody want to vote for the next one or add another area to the list?

[/quote] I would suggest that in your menu that you add the borders of La Verandrye Provincial Park in Ontario - east of Quetico - north of BWCAW

[quote=Gavia;11953]Well, I certainly can't argue your last point. :-)

I also agree that PP is a great place to share trip reports, etc. My comment was to suggest that there isn't a need for Ben to put a lot of time into mapping the T-F Flowage.

However, if one Flowage, then all four of them, including the Chippewa, the Willow, and the Rainbow.[/quote]

I've been planning on adding the T-F and Chippewa flowages because there are already so many photos on Paddle Planner for them (thanks AH!). I wasn't aware of the other two flowages, so I'll be sure to add those, too, when I get to them. I hope to actually get some stuff done when the semester ends in a few weeks.

Depends on what one uses the site for, I suppose. My primary use is sharing/viewing photos and site info. I spend a good chunk of time scrolling through the maps to see what others have said or uploaded, and PP is also my primary storage for trip photos. I feel a lot better about Ben monetizing my stuff than a few CEOs I could name. :)

I've been to the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage several times.  It's basically just a big lake, so there really aren't any significant route options.  The maps and charts available on the DNR's website are enough.  If you plug the GPS coordinates into GoogleEarth you can navigate using a smartphone.  I see no need to create a resource for it on this site.

Here's one more for the pile: The Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area. I randomly stumbled across this blog, and the T-F looks awesome. It's just west of where I usually go, but somehow I've never visited. I fully intend to check it out this summer. There are more details and maps from the state here: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Lands/TurtleFlambeau/camping.html.

With regard to the Minnesota water trails: the state has an incredible collection of water trail maps for many of the rivers in MN. I got all of them several years ago and the stack is about 9 inches high. They have all the information one could need to plan a multi-day trip just about anywhere. (I got the maps because I was starting work on a water trails website for Wisconsin and I was looking for examples. If that project had ever been launched, I would have used Minnesota's approach as a guide.)
