|Site Number:||26 and 11|
We happened upon this campground after driving around on the lovely forest roads in the Superior National Forest. We had no reservations, and many of these campsites are reservable, but we lucked out and someone had cancelled their two night reservation on site 26. While we were parked right up along the campground road, our picnic table and fire ring were between us and the lake on this steeply sloped campsite. If you don't mind going up and down, this is an amazing campsite. You can leave your boat/kayak/canoe right on the shore in your campsite. We spent an entire afternoon sitting comfortable on the shore in peace and quiet.
Motors are allowed on the lake, but it's still an incredibly quiet lake. Kayaks and canoes were more common.
After two nights, we needed to move to a non reservable campsite. We chose #11, down the road and quite separated from other campsites. It was not on the lake. Very private and quiet. We were able to walk down a nearby trail to access the lake.
Vault toilets were immaculately clean with lots of TP.
The concessionaire for this campground is also Sawbill Outfitters from nearby Sawbill Lake campground. Very pleasant and helpful camp host. It seems to be a very popular campground - every site was filled on Friday night.
No cell signal. (This was a plus for us.)
We'll be back and we'll reserve either site 31 or 26.
