Jubilee Lake - Campsite #2


Landing Topography of under-water approach: Shallow, mucky bottom with some large rocks to avoid.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Some underwater rocks to maneuver around but nothing too difficult. Could easily pull up and unload two canoes.

Topography leading to tent sites: Moderately sloped uphill trail leads to site. Watch out for rocks and roots.

- Landing is mucky.

- Trail from landing to campsite.


Regular or low-maintenance: Regular

Size of open ground area: Large site with lots of space to spread out.

Extent of tree cover: 100% This site is set back from the lake and very treed

Degree of levelness: Quite level on the main portion of the site. Significant slope up from the water and there is a lower level area behind the main site where more tent pads could be found.

Number of tent sites: Many areas available for small tents. One clearly defined area where a larger tent would fit well.

North exposure: View of lake through the trees.

East exposure: Protected by forest.

South exposure: Protected by forest.

West exposure: Protected by forest.

- View of main site.

- Campfire area in centre, tent pad area to the right and extra space to the left.

- Open space to the west of the site. Lots of areas for tents if you prefer to be further away from the main site.

General description: This site is a surprising beauty. From the water, it doesn't look like much as it’s so protected. But the site is quite open once you get to it and would provide lots of space for a group. Access to the water is not ideal and you’d need to wade into the mucky bottom lake for any swimming. The campfire area is well appointed with some log “benches” and a stone “table”.

Overall accessibility: Once up with your gear from the water, the site is open and easy to move around with few impediments.
