I also found this route more crowded than on 2 other previous trips. We always could find a campsite, but I was a little worried a couple of times.

I would rather get away from the crowds if all possible. We usually travel in a ways to avoid the camp site issue. Nice trip report.

You may want to try the Quetico next time. My wife and I were there last week with little difficulty with crowds. The only time we felt a bit crowded was on the international border at Curtain Falls. There was a youth group of 9 with 3 canoes.
