Little Otterslide Lake Campsite #4


Topography of under-water approach: Large landing with large rock underwater, very small slope, makes it easy to approach

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Big landing with lots of space to unload, no impediments.

Topography leading to tent sites: A couple feet of small incline, barely noticeable.

View of the landing from the campsite.


Campsite maintenance: Regular.

Size of open ground area: Medium size, maybe 20x20 ft.

Extent of tree cover: Campsite has decent amount of tree coverage, but forest behind campsite is dense with trees, more so than other island sites.

Degree of levelness: Flat.

Number of level tent-sites: 2 tent-sites, both small-medium. Can probably accommodate 4-8 people comfortably between the two spots.

North exposure: Tree coverage protects from the north wind.

East exposure: Dense forest protects from eastern winds.

South exposure: A bit exposed to the south, but the location of the island and shape of the lake makes me think southern winds won’t usually be a big concern.

West exposure: A bit exposed to the west, but again the location of the island and shape of the lake makes me think western winds won’t usually be a big concern.

General description: A nice cozy campsite. Even though you’re in the middle of Little Otterslide Lake, you feel nestled away in privacy. The tent-sites are good and there's lots of seating by the fire-pit area. However, it doesn’t offer much in terms of view or rocky areas to swim/suntan/stargaze. It’s the perfect campsite after a long day and a late arrival. But it wouldn’t be my first choice as a campsite to get to early and spend the day at.

Overall accessibility: Easily accessible.
