Kiosk Lake – Campsite #16
There’s very little not to like about this campsite. The front of the campsite is a mix between soft beach and large rock. It’s really a dream come true and the best of both worlds when it comes to campsite shorelines in my opinion. It’s very easy to land and unload the canoe, with easy storage on the beach allowing for frequent paddles if you’d like. The main campsite area is just a few feet away inland. The fire pit and seating are near the waters edge so it is decently exposed to the elements, but there is a bit of protection from the surrounding trees. There are two or three tent spots nearby, flat enough for a few people to sleep comfortably before turning into a small slope. The main campsite area isn’t too large, but it’s big enough to comfortably house any group size for their stay, especially considering the main appeal of the campsite is the shoreline. This was the first campsite I stopped to check out on Kiosk and I was already impressed. For a lake as bustling as Kiosk, it offers a good amount of privacy too, relatively speaking. It is however very close to Campsite #15, so if that campsite is occupied you will likely hear noise.
