Little Trout Lake – Campsite #3
I haven’t seen every campsite on Little Trout Lake, but from the sites that I have seen, I really enjoyed this one. It’s hidden away at the far east end of the lake, in it’s own quiet little corner. It’s also just off the canoe path for people passing through Little Trout, so you won’t have any through traffic passing by in front of the site. The only campsite close by is Campsite #2, which isn’t a very nice campsite (and is far from Ralph Bice where most people will enter from), so will usually go unoccupied. Saying that, this is probably the most private site on Little Trout Lake, and it’s quite pretty too. There’s an adequate fire pit with a makeshift shelf for your food, and the site has two tent spots tucked away, sheltered by trees. But the biggest selling point is obviously the beach at the front of the site, with shallow sandy waters that extends for several meters. This provides great opportunities for swimming, sun lounging, and star gazing. On top of that, you get a gorgeous view down the body of Little Trout Lake, you’re away from most of the noise on the lake, and you get a spectacular view of the sunset. Most people will take a site closer to Ralph Bice, but if you’re looking for a nice site that also offers some privacy, it could be worth paddling to the east end of the lake to see if this site is available.
