Rock Lake Campsite #19


Topography of under-water approach: Most of the approach is extremely abrupt and deep. The only shallow area is a narrow shelf located at the very eastmost end of the eastmost sloping rock

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: The tight confines of the narrow underwater shelf and sloped rock rising out of the water will typically necessitate stepping out on to the underwater shelf to secure the canoe to the adjacent bush and to transfer gear to the sloped rock surface.

Topography to campsite: 20'+ high, steep rock and roots incline. Exercise extreme caution, specially in wet conditions.
