Big Porcupine Lake – Campsite #10

I paddled by this site previous to checking it out and thought the huge rocky shoreline at the front of the site looked cool and inviting. I had no idea what the actual site entailed though. I was surprised when I went on shore to see a tiny fire pit with no seating, and one tent spot directly beside it. Well, that’s not as great as I was expecting. I followed the trail inland and it turns out the main campsite is located well into the forest. There’s plenty more tent spots and an epic fire pit with one flat bench in front of it, all of which is sheltered by the surrounding trees. The main campsite doesn’t have any views onto the water, and the whole thing is right in the middle of a higher traffic canoe route, but despite that it still feels really cool.
