We did the Bowron in Sept 2023. It's totally booked. It seems a daily race to get a campsite. . . and then you will be asked if OK to share.  They were VERY nice Canadians with the old fashioned roaring primus gas stoves.
     I'm from Oregon and we are looking for something remote for a 8-10 day outing. Experienced lake and river paddlers.

Loved the scenery in Bowron but it's to crowded for a solo guy like me.

  Adirondacks are beautiful as well but again for me to crowded. It would be nice to have a camp there though and a lightweight canoe so you could do a portage in one trip for short trips just carrying the canoe/pack.

I carry my canoe like you do with a rope but mine is tied bow to portage yoke. I'm right handed so I let my arm rest on the rope with my left. Saves a lot of energy not having a hand raised gripping the canoe.

  My canoe seat/seat bag makes my canoe a little stern heavy. I can just put a little pressure by sliding my arm forward on the rope to drop bow when going downhill if I start to drag.

It's amazing how such a little trick can make things so much easier. I'll never carry a canoe again with one arm up holding the gunnel. Give the rope trick a try you won't regret it.  Wink Cool

both have portages, but not so wild as the Q.
