Doesn't sound like it could get much better. Love it when everything falls into place with campsites and weather. The lakes with motors have always kept me away, but glad to see they were not an issue for you.

Sounds like a great trip! Have always wanted to check out Trout and Pine. Did you guys paddle across Vermillion or get a tow?

I've gone through motor lakes before, but never basecamped on one. I was surprised how little traffic there was.

We had two nice days out and back for paddling across Vermilion. About 3 hours, but not bad. I wouldn't want to do it with a big headwind though.

By the way, what is the large dock-like structure submerged on the Vermilion side of the Trout Lake canoe portage?

I am pretty sure the only way to get on Trout is by portage hence the lack of motor traffic. If you have a canoe the shorter portage is beautiful but the longer one is flatter and will allow for trolley. The west side of the lake had few mosquitoes as well! That paddle can be difficult if you're going into the wind.
Thank you for sharing!
