Little Island Lake – Campsite #5
This campsite is the closest island site to the portage leading to Sheriff Pond and Tanamakoon Lake. Little Island Lake isn’t too big, but if you prefer to camp near that portage for whatever reason, this is a good option. The campsite has a slab of sloped rock at the front shoreline, which would probably be a great spot to swim and sunbathe. Although it’s worth noting that since the campsite faces east, you would probably only get to enjoy the sunshine for the first half of the day. But if you stay up late enough and are lucky enough to get clear skies, it would make a great spot to stargaze. It’s a very picturesque front of the campsite but the interior of the site is relatively small and exposed. The fire pit has one circular log beside it, providing a very primitive feeling. I found one tent spot off to the side that was a bit overgrown; there might have been one or two more further inland but I didn’t scout thoroughly enough to check. Either way, I wouldn’t recommend this site for a large group. The site has its pros and cons but unless you’re a solo traveller or travelling with a small group, and you have decent weather, this site probably won’t be what you’re looking for. Personally I wouldn’t mind camping here, but all I need is one tent spot and some rock by the shoreline to enjoy the sun and the stars, and I’m a happy camper.
