This looks like a rest stop that somehow got converted into a campsite. From the water, this site fools you with its small but pleasant-looking beach. The site itself is also in a good location, across from Bates Island, right at the entry to the main part of Opeongo’s South Arm. However, the site itself is basically a narrow strip of land along the shoreline, with hardly any suitably flat tent sites. The fire pit is in an awkward location, essentially blocking the narrow path between the canoe landing beach area, and the tent area. There’s a decent table constructed between two trees, but the only other furniture is a log that has definitely seen better days. The thunder box appears newly relocated based on the lack of an established path leading towards it. The beach itself offers decent southeastern and northeastern views across the lake, and would at least allow for good stargazing if you had the misfortune of spending a night here. This site’s beach would be a nice spot to stop for a swim or a rest, but it wouldn’t be an ideal place to camp at.
