Lake Louisa – Campsite #15

The island campsites on Lake Louisa seem to be a popular choice for many. One of the islands has two campsites, and this is the western of the two. It’s a great site with a large chunk of elevated rock at the front of the site to enjoy the afternoon sun before watching the sunset and stargazing. There’s a rocky ‘driveway’ to park the canoe making it really easy to unload, although you still need to get your gear up the incline into the main site. The interior of the site has a well-built fire pit with one flat bench beside it. There are three good tent spots surrounding the fire pit, one of which is a bit more off to the side and sheltered among the trees. The whole island has an open, spacious feeling that I was very fond of. It’s a short 30-second walk to the other side of the island, with two thunder box outhouses between the two sites. The main drawback of this campsite is that you might need to share a small island with another group, but other than that it’s a really great site.
