Big Trout Lake – Campsite #13
Just looking at this campsite from the water and it’s obvious that this is a beast of a site. The site sits on top of a massive chunk of rock, with no apparent canoe landing… it seems you just need to find somewhere among the rocks to land. Have fun getting your gear to the top, but once you do you’re rewarded with an epic view down Big Trout Lake from what feels like your own little castle. Despite the slope and elevation, there are a few patches of flat ground to accommodate a few tents. There is obviously tons of room to spread out among the rock and enjoy the morning sun, stargaze, swim etc. but on the other hand, water access (going for a paddle, putting out the fire, etc.) is obviously a pain in the butt. If this site faced west for the sunset I’d be more inclined to camp here, but for an east-facing site I’m not sure if the poor water access is worth the elevation. But that’s just my personal preference.
