Boston Kayaker

Kayaking on Lake Monroe - in Lac-Supérieur, Québec

Rating: Three Stars - I scouted a put in at the Le Cyclo campgrounds at the northern end of Lac Monroe. We were staying in a cottage on Petit lac Monroe which was the perfect take out for this trip. The skies are gray when we kayaked and the pictures of the Lac Monroe's shores could have been a lot better. I give the scenery around Lac Monroe 3 stars!

Too early and too cold for beach goers.
