Lowe's

Been a long time for me too. Raquette River Outfitters in Tupper Lake (awesome people) have a specialized map of Lowe's with comments about each site. It is pretty well done so you should try and...

Floodwood

So if one wants to do a day trip on Polywog we are out of luck? I used to park near the little "beach" and access there.

Definitely call and ask - the people that work there are very friendly and helpful. There is a lot at the boat launch and a small one off to the right as you pass the first one. There is a site on...

Rollins

Pretty funny - I started staying at Rollins years ago and when I could not deal with 2 weeks of canoe camping because of old bones and kids! I did not mention it because you mentioned you were a...

Canoeing in the Adk's

I was in your shoes when I started visiting the ADK's 20 years ago. Unfortunately there was no internet and so no ADK Forum so I relied on books and magazines. I personally think that a "first...

Lodging

In Lake Clear also check out the Lodge at Lake Clear. Not cheap but very nice. If you want basic lodging Charlie's Inn has rooms and the bar/restaurant is in the same building.

September can get cold - axe or saw for gathering lots of wood. As mentioned, a tarp is key.

Lows

As mentioned - a Saturday start in the Summer will be rough. If possible try and do a Sunday start the week before Labor Day. That week is much less busy because of school. (I have seen the Lean To...

Old Fordge

Tickners used to have a trip that let you go down the Moose River for a few hours and at the finish point you loaded the canoe on the Adirondack Railroad train to return. My kids loved it (so did I).
