This site is the third campsite in a cluster of sites located along the eastern shore of Allan Lake, behind the island campsite. Allan Lake itself is not very wide and is quite warm in August. This campsite has a beach entrance and a has about a 30 foot long sandy beach and shallow entrance for offloading and swimming. There are three tent pads on the site; the largest one being the closest to the fire pit. It was large enough to fit our North Face six person tent. The other two tent pads were slightly smaller. The thunder box was a short walk east from the campsite, and while older and a mossier, it did the job. The tall pine trees clack around in the wind and I don’t know how safe it would be under high winds, but in a gentle breeze on a sunny day it was the perfect spot. There was plenty of seating around the fire and a small bushcraft shelf when we visited.
