There's a temptation while planning a trip, to try to "preselect" individual campsites along the route. Don't bother. A number of circumstances make this impossible, unless of course, a particular day-destination lake has only one campsite! The Algonquin reservation system currently assigns reservations only for lakes or watercourses ... not for individual campsites. When you arrive at your day-destination lake, you may find other parties already occuppying some of the campsites. Once you reach your day-destination lake, pull out your map, review conditions and start the campsite selection process. That particular day's variety of temperature, wind, rain, sun, bug and even moon conditions will help to narrow down your choice of shoreline exposure.
