Snow Lake Campsite #1

This campsite is located just outside the park. It is located on a canoe route which is portrayed on the official online 2015 Canoe Route Map and which runs between Smoke Lake and Park Lake. While the campsite was portrayed on official park maps during the 1990's, it was subsequently removed from the maps. While Snow Lake is identified as Reservation Zone #154, it is now described as having zero campsites and being "outside park, campsite closed".
