Pinetree Lake Campsite #1


Topography of under-water approach: Shallow, rocky landing on southern shore. May have been easier to unload from the large rocks on the northwestern shore, but we decided against that.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: The southern shore is full of grafruit-sized stones. It gets easier/cleaner closer to the southwestern-most point of the site.

Topography to tent sites: The climb to the site is very steep.

Looking inwards/east to the campsite.

Looking south onto the lake. The firepit is downhill from the large tree in the center.


Campsite maintenance: Regular

Open ground area: Plenty.

Degree of levelness: Most of it not level and unsuitable for tents.

Number of tent sites: We found one decent-enough tend pad on a "shelf" about 15M inland from the firepit.

General description: The firepit is lodged between a large tree and the southern edge of the site. The seating area has your back to the lake (and a steep drop) - not ideal. This very high campsite is almost fully exposed on all sides except the east. It is a steep climb to the site no matter which landing is used.

Overall accessibility: I would rate accessibility as low.

If anyone has additional photographs of this campsite, please submit them so this record can be expanded.
