Littledoe Lake Campsite #3


Topography of under-water approach: Flat rocks sloping to notch on the side of the site.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: The notch cuts the shoreline, allowing canoes to empty safely. An option is to stand in the water to help disembark. There's a slow slope into the lake. After the canoe is empty, a small area leads to large rocks that lead to level, then to the slightly sloped site. A large rock has steps in the side which assist with the climb.

Topography to tent sites: Once the large rock is climbed, the site slopes very slightly to the water on the other side. It has a fairly flat area where 4+ tents could be set up.
