Kiosk Lake – Campsite #14
Unlike some of the nearby campsites that have a very accessible and large beach landing, this campsite has more of a rocky pebble type of landing. It is still large and easily accessible, but not nearly as enjoyable as having soft sand. There’s a steep climb up the rocks to get to the main campsite, which has a very nicely built fire pit and two flat benches directly in front of it. I did find it odd however that one of the benches is on the side of the fire pit that is blocked by the fire pit rocks. Basically, only one of the two benches actually faces the opening of the fire pit and would be prime seating while a fire is going. In front of the fire pit area is the main large rock at the front of the campsite, offering a spectacular view out north towards Kiosk Lake. Between the large rock up high, or the pebble beach down below, you would surely get an amazing view of the sunset and no shortage of spots to watch the stars on a clear night. The campsite is rounded out with three tent spots behind the fire pit, tucked away slightly inland where the surrounding trees offer shelter from the wind and rain. The main downside with this campsite is the steep rocky climb from the landing to the main area, but if the inaccessibility isn’t an issue for your group, it’s a nice campsite to consider choosing.
