Daisy Lake – Campsite #1

Daisy Lake – Campsite #1

Approaching this campsite from the west (which is where the landing is), it looks small, enclosed, and not that exciting. To be honest, the only reason I pulled over was because I needed to use the thunder box. But when I got on land the campsite ended up being much more than I expected. There’s a spacious interior surrounding the fire pit and seating, with a handful of large, flat, and sheltered tent spots. The site is a bit elevated which offers a nice view onto the lake, and there are some large rocks by the shoreline to enjoy the sun and stargaze in the evening. The canoe landing isn’t the best; it’s surrounded by rocks and has a short incline to get to the main area of the site. The other downside is that it’s very close to Campsite #2 and you’ll be able to hear any noise if there’s a group occupying the site. But otherwise I was pleasantly surprised with what this site had to offer.
