Big Porcupine Lake Campsite #10


Topography of under-water approach: North-east facing landing, large sloping rock down into water, with small area of 1' deep sand bottom. No obstructions to landing.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Take care when stepping out on to sloped rock if it's wet.

Topography to tent sites: 15' rise to actual firepit and tentsite area, which is located way back into the trees.

- Approaching the campsite's point from the "rear" (from the west), down the channel which joins the halves of the lake.

- NE corner of the point's sloped rock landing.

- A break in the trees on the rear of the point, looking NW across the channel.


Campsite maintenance: regular

Size of open area: 40' x 40'.

Extent of tree cover: 100% canopied over tent/firepit area.

Degree of levelness: Once you're back from the actual rock point, the entire site is level ..

Number of level tent sites: Plenty of tent sites.

North exposure: Protected from the north winds by intervening trees.

East exposure: While the landing is open to the east, the tentsites are protected by the intervening trees.

South exposure: Full forest to the south.

West exposure: Both point and tentsites are protected by trees.

- Deep into the trees is the firepit and its big reflector rock.

- Looking north, back to the point, through the tentsites' area.

General description: Good for large group, due to plenty of tentsites. However, there isn't any real view to enjoy in any direction. Bugs could be a problem due to sheltered nature of entire site.

Overall accessibility: Good.
