Lake Saint John
We continued up the Saguenay River to its source, Saint John's Lake. This is an almost perfectly round lake 23 miles in diameter. It is a big weekend getaway spot for Quebecers from the big (and hot) cities further south. We checked into a busy campground right on the lake and actually went SWIMMING! The water was surprisingly warm and with the wind and the waves it actually reminded us of the Atlantic Seashore.
