Big Trout Lake – Campsite #3
This site has a shallow beach to land your canoe, and a small gradual incline to the main area of the campsite. It looks a bit overgrown and I can tell that the site is probably rarely used. But the grassy ground makes for a soft place to pitch a tent and like many other sites on Big Trout Lake, it offers a gorgeous view down the lake. I was a bit shocked to see a thoroughly built shelter behind the site, complete with a wall of branches to act as a wind break, a large flat rock to act as a night table, and some lashed together branches to make it very easy to hang a tarp roof. If you’re a minimalist who likes to sleep under a tarp, or if you want particularly good shelter where you sleep, this might be the site for you. Personally I found it a bit eerie and would not want to sleep there.
