This campsite is tiny, unappealing, and forgettable. It’s located on a very narrow part of the peninsula, midway up Kingscote Lake, across the bay from the access point. The canoe landing is a very small patch of exposed rocky shoreline, with some rocks set up to break the waves. There are a number of hazardous partially submerged rocks along the peninsula that make the approach to the site risky if you’re not paying close attention. The site itself is really just a narrow path across the peninsula from the canoe landing to a small opening (and possible alternate canoe landing) on the opposite shore. The fire pit area is small and quite tree-covered, with a small bench for seating. However, the bench is located fairly far from the fire pit. The only suitable tent site is just past the fire pit and could accommodate a 3-4 person tent. Unfortunately, there’s a long, sloping trail immediately beside this tent spot, which could be a problem during a heavy rainfall. The trail looks like it might have been previously used to access the now-abandoned cabin at the adjacent Campsite #12, though it doesn’t lead anywhere in particular now, except to the thunder box. There are also trails that lead to the equally unimpressive neighbouring Campsites #11 and Campsite #12 on the peninsula. This campsite has very little to make it appealing and can only accommodate a few people at most, so you’ll likely want to pass on this one.
