Lake Opeongo East Arm – Campsite #23
Campsite #23 on the northeast side of Lake Opeongo has a great view south towards Opeongo Island and the narrows into the East Arm. I visited this campsite when staying at CS #22; this campsite was occupied on our first night but was empty the next day so we walked over to it to check it out. The majority of trees are mature red pines with large open ground space between. The large fire pit is out in an open area and quite built up and is central to the site and has a few seating areas around it. The thunder box is relatively in good shape and is located behind what appears to be an old outhouse (no longer in use). The water out from the beach is shallow, and a sand bottom extends quite a ways out into the bay, so it would be a good swimming beach for children. Firewood was not that accessible as it is heavily picked over. There is a large “cooking” kitchen area, which is normal for these easy access sites.
