comment Where can I find visitor statistics for Canadian provincial and territorial parks?
I take issue with your claim that camping only on designated sites means no solitude. In canoe camping parks, backcountry camping is limited to designated sites, but each site is for one party and well separated from others. I have gone for days without seeing other people except at portages. You might want to look into the specifics for the parks you're interested in - a designated site doesn't mean a crowded campground, at least it doesn't have to.

comment How can I locate the leak in a inflatable pad
If you are camping when you realize there is a leak, a lake makes a good bath substitute.
