Went from Big Whitshell, Crowduck, Richey, One, Two, Three to Mantario. Then cut across to Hop, lake, through Bishoff, Indian lake, Brant Lake and to Sailing lake. Then went north up the Whiteshell river through Litlle Whiteshell lake and back to Big Whiteshell lake. My friend and I did it in 3 days and 2 nights. I stayed on the small island on Mantario lake it’s a very nice campsite with fire pit and picnic table. It is small however. Second night stayed at Sailing lake. Stayed at the campsite on the top of the peninsula across from the portage end from a granite lake. It was big but pretty messy looks like a big group of fisherman stayed here as there was toilet paper and eggshells everywhere. The portages were somewhat easy to find except the one from Bishoff to Indian lake the 1750m one. It’s around the peninsula from where it says on my GPS. There is a campsite there and the portage marker is jammed in the fire pit. Many of the portage markers are damaged or hanging by one bolt or even laying on the ground. In perticular from mantario to sailing. There is a lot of portaging and it is pretty challenging for 3 days. 4 would be optimal. If staying at Mallard falls campsite there is no portage marker from mallard lake into the whiteshell river around the falls. On the portage there is a nice big campsite. The portage is on the right of the falls. Also I would suggest doing this trip in early summer I did in August and mallard lake was very overgrown with wild rice and other marsh. It took a lot of effort to paddle through it.
