Algonquin & Beyond

Lake Louisa – Campsite #19

From the water, this site looks pretty unappealing with a not-so-great canoe landing and large incline up to the main site. But as I spent some time at the site, my opinion quickly changed. It’s got a large chunk of rock that’s great for swimming, which also faces west for the afternoon sun and sunset views. It’s got unique split-log seating in front of the fire pit, with a flat rock kitchen table off to the side. And it’s got some large, flat tent spots throughout the spacious interior of the site. If you don’t mind the minor inconvenience of unloading your gear on the sloped rock and carrying it up to the main area, then this site might be a hidden gem available when the other good sites on Louisa are already taken.
