Campsite #9 on Kingscote Lake is pretty average overall. It’s located on the eastern shore of the narrow middle stretch of Kingscote Lake, facing west towards Campsite #5. The canoe landing is a small sandy beach, but there are a lot of dead trees and organic matter decomposing in the water that would make it unpleasant for swimming. The site is generally very flat and has several suitable tent sites, but due to the roots everywhere, these would only fit small (1-2 person) tents. Consequently, this site may only be suitable for smaller groups with multiple tents. The fire pit area is open with plenty of seating that would allow for nice sunbathing or stargazing in pleasant weather, but could present challenges if trying to cook over a fire in the wind or rain. There’s a steep hill behind the site, and a trail along the lakeshore towards Campsite #8 and Campsite #10. Otherwise, there are very few notable features. This site’s best feature is the fire pit area. But the poor swimming and challenges of finding a good sized tent spot make this one of the less desirable sites on Kingscote Lake.
