Campsite #1 on Kingscote Lake isn’t anything spectacular. Its main highlights are that it has fairly flat terrain, and it is in close proximity to the access point, though that second one may be a downside for some. The campsite is just around the corner from the walk-in car camping sites and faces southeast towards West Island. The canoe landing is fairly shallow with a rocky shore, but has quite a steep rise up to the campsite. It would be challenging to land a canoe here if you didn’t want to get your feet wet in the underwater muck. Swimming would also be unpleasant here due to the rocks and muck around the landing. The fire pit is very exposed to wind from the lake, with only a few benches for seating. There are several flat, open tent sites that could easily accommodate three medium-sized (3-4 person) tents. The thunder box is not new, but it is still sturdy, and decently separated from the site. Although this site is incredibly easy to paddle to and has room for a large group, there are far nicer sites available further down the lake.
