Helping friends in the area this summer and will have several opportunities to do one each of 2 night/2 days; 2 night/3 days; 5 nights 6-day trips if all goes well with my partner. Might be able to swing in more if I play my cards right. Wondering if there are any park'n play spots, on the water campsites on crownland, or loops that we could get on to. If I stay around my friends, I will just work! Anything is better than nothing... not sure we will get out on an extended trip this year or not.

You could check out the Grassy River, Ivanhoe River, and Groundhog River.

Thanks. I did read about the Ivanoe in the Routes section here https://news.ourontario.ca/nastawgan/123427/page/2 . This article has similar info to below, but it seems to be missing the 2nd page of the article.
There a trip log from 1998 (Kinogama/Ivanhoe) Kormack (which he doesn't advise) by Kevin Callan in "Further up the Creek" that I found (thanks for sending me the info Cheryl), in the old Canoe Route of Ontario. I don't have enough time to start that far up, even if I could find the "old logging" road into Tooms Lake. I will keep looking.

I am glad you read the Nastawgan trip log. What a tale! It could have been a nightmare situation. I forgot to tell you when I sent the info, that both trips were in 1998, low water years, and that Callan chose not to run the river around the 3km portage. As you can see from Don's report, that was the right decision. Take a look at Google Earth. There is a tonne of logging roads. Looks like an active area. I mapped out the distance from the N, and I think, at logging road speed, it would take a day to get down a point where the river could be accessed.
