Anyone camped at Manatoulin Island, Ontario, Canada?

Have you camped/or visited Manatoulin Island (Lake Huron) in Ontario, Canada? We are considering a trip around Lake Superior in '09 and maybe onto Manatoulin. Thanks for any input.

It has been many years (as in decades) since we camped on Manitoulin - we enjoyed it a lot - but today we mainly use it as an alternative route (and a pleasant one) to Southwesten Ontario by taking the Chi-Cheemaun ferry from South Baymouth on Manitoulin over to Tobermory at the end of the Bruce Peninsula. The real value to this route (IMHO) is the Bruce Peninsula - Tobermory is a great base for exploring Fathom Five National Marine Park - and not far away is Bruce Peninsula National Park (camping at Cyprus Lake).

Hope these help - sorry I couldn't be of more help with Manitoulin.

Camped there several years ago when I had my Casita. Spent several days at Bruce Peninsula Natl Park and then took the "Big Canoe" across to Manitoulin. Only stayed on the island one night and I think it was at Mindemoya but can't remember the name of the CG. Don't remember anything that special about the island either.
