Just back form a wonderful week on Ross Lake. What would I have liked to know before we left for our trip? 1. Canoeing gear rented from Ross Lake Resort is of high quality and appropriate for the conditions. Though they do not rent dry suits. Traveling with young-ish children, I do recommend them. The suits also made for much more pleasant and longer-lasting swimming sessions. 2. I estimate that for every hour you canoe up-lake, it will take you three hours to canoe down-lake (back to Ross Lake Resort and the dam). We had fair and pleasant weather, but still, even the moderate breeze was enough resistance to give one a good workout. 3. The poop shacks (aka outhouses) are right next to the camping spots. Be prepared for a pungent odor unless you are lucky enough to land a spot at a distance, or upwind. Also, just because you reserved a "group site" be prepared for not enough sites to set up your tent. We spent a night at a "group site" that had two tent pads. We were a gorup of seven with a total of four tents.
