Lake Louisa Campsite #6


Topography of under-water approach: This campsite has a large shoreline 'rock-porch'. However, underwater it is quite irregular and not suitable for landing canoes. To the east of the rocks is a gently sloped area from which canoes can brought ashore.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Gear can be unloaded and carried along the shore to the campsite by way of the rock area.

Topography leading to tent sites: Slight rough step to tent and firepit areas.

General description: If you have launched from the portage from Rock Lake into a strong headwind, this is just across the first bay and the first campsite on the south shore. While it's not an attractive campsite, it is sheltered from the northwest wind.

Overall accessibility: Accessibility from the water is by way of the east part of the shoreline. Some rocks and a small dirt ledge have to be accessed in front of the campsite.
