Burnt Island Lake Campsite #39


Topography of under-water approach: Steep sloped rocks all along the immediate campsite. There's a small inlet to the right of the site with a small notch which allows a canoe to unload to a small landing. There's a 20 foot walk to the site, west side entrance.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: The entire frontage of the site has steep front with sloped rocks .. 15+ feet up to the campsite's level ground.

Topography to tent sites: Once the climb is done, the west side of the site is narrow but flat, leading to the middle of the site that slopes all the way up to the main tree line at the back of the site. The site is mainly sloped with several (3 to 5) small flat areas for tents. There's a large firepit in the middle of the site which is backed by a large rock which reflects heat.
