Little Trout Lake Campsite #5

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Shallow rock shelf and shoreline bushes confine the landing's single "slip". Extra canoes would have to be brought in one-at-a-time.

Narrow "slip" runs alongside the shoreline bushes to the left behind the rock ...

Plenty of rock on which to unload gear ...
