Shirley Lake Campsite, Algonquin Provincial ParkAfter our trip to Booth Lake last year, Peter and I decided to do some more exploring in the area of the Shall Lake access Shirley Lake, Algonquin Provincial Park Mappoint. This year, instead of heading north intoFarm Lake, we turned south under the bridge and through the narrows to Crotch Lake. Like last year, this was also a 4 day canoe trip over the July long weekend.

Our trip would take us around through Crotch Lake and up in to Shirley Lake where we would set up our first camp and do some Lake Trout fishing. On day 2 we were going to head into Ryan Lake and then decide how much further to explore on a day trip. For the 3rd day our plan was to move back on down to camp on Crotch Lake and see if we could catch some Bass and Northern Pike since Peter is still looking to catch his first Northern Pike.

Map to Shall Lake Access Point 17 - Algonquin Provincial ParkDespite its name, the Shall Lake access point actually lies on the Opeongo River between Farm Lake and Crotch Lake. Crotch Lake then flows south into Shall Lake, where the access point was located several years ago. To get to the Shall Lake access point, which is also known as Access 17 on the Canoe Routes of Algonquin Provincial Park map, you turn off Highway 60 in the town of Madawaska and head north on Major Lake road for 25 km.
