Question Kayak trip Suggestions? Places with treatable water?

Hi All,

I am brand new to this forum after just perusing it for hours today for the first time. I will try to make this as quick and to the point as possible, so here we go:

I am interested in doing a multiday trip to a wilderness area in New England sometime next year. I have been looking for a place that is remote, has primitive camping (established primitive sites or state lands where camping is permitted under the usual stipulations), and somewhere where I will not have to pack in a lot of DRINKING WATER. I will be using a kayak (Jackson Rogue 10) that is capable of packing for relatively extended trips, as long as I can have a source of treatable water (have a steripen w/ prefilter, lifestraw, maybe iodine tabs as backup). Due to wanting to use my kayak and thus limiting my carrying capacity, I have been searching for a place that has pristine enough waters that I could safely treat the water for drinking.

As I said, I am new to this forum and have just begun my research into the Adriondack Wilderness as well as upper New England. I have found plenty of awesome looking places for a remote kayak camping adventure, but I haven't seen much discussion on drinking water...

Could anyone recommend a place/area/trip that would fit my criteria (if there are any in the Adriondack Wildernss or elsewhere)?

Places that caught my eye were the St. Regis Canoe area, and 5 Ponds Wilderness Area, just due to the remoteness/lack of motorized boats, but from what I gather you wouldn't want to be drinking that water even after treating...

Any help with recommendations or experiences are welcome.
