Lake Louisa Campsite #18


Topography of under-water approach: Large rock and rubble, shallow rocky flat emerging out of 20+' depth of water.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Some emergent and shallow rock scattered about to watch out for, sandy/pebbly up on shore.

Topography to tent sites: Mostly flat with some depressions, lots of rock and root.

Landing area, south-western shoreline, looking south-west ...

Looking northwest .. northern island with single campsite visible in distance ...

Firepit and kitchen area, looking NNW. Note large rock serving as kitchen table ...


Campsite: regular maintenance.

Size of open area: estimated as 80 x 60'.

Extent of tree cover: guestimate of 80% canopied over tent/kitchen area.

Number of level tent sites: Easily two 3-man tents

Tent area: flat, as is the kitchen/firepit location.

North exposure: Protected from the North winds.

East exposure: Protected from eastern winds.

South exposure: Southern exposure from canoe landing only. Nice lounging sunny rocks along shore at campsite.

West exposure: Good western exposure .. would be rough in the event of strong westerly winds, but tenting area nicely protected.

General description: Good campsite from what I remember. A unique large circular rock suspended on top of boulder makes for a nice kitchen table. Rough benches around firepit. Firepit well protected from any wind direction. I don't recollect any remarkable rise between boat launch and tenting/kitchen area, likely nicely tapered and within <4' vertical of water level. Good sunset view and lots of late morning-afternoon and evening sun exposure. Nice views in all directions other then east.

Overall accessibility: Good.
