Algonquin & Beyond

Burnt Island Lake – Campsite #39

This site’s main attraction is the fire pit and seating area, for obvious reasons. One thing I noticed is that the high fire pit makes it easier for cooking purposes, but it’s less enjoyable when sitting around enjoying an evening fire. Other than the fire pit, the main thing to note about this site is that it’s on a big slant. There are a few flat tent spot options, but otherwise everything is on a slant… including the not-so-accessible sloping rock canoe landing. This also means that firewood collection is a pain because you need to go up, down, up, down the hill every time you go into the forest to get wood. Overall it’s a pretty average site but it’s not the most accessible.
