In his book “A Paddler’s Guide to Algonquin Park”, Kevin Callan mentions it is difficult to find this site unoccupied. And I can see why. It’s a lovely little site beside the small falls flowing from the pond below the dam from Big Trout Lake. There’s a trail along the stream, up to the quiet pond that I’m sure it would be a beautiful little exploratory paddle. It’s a fairly well sheltered site, with a good fire pit, benches and cooking area. There are two, maybe three decent tent spots. A typical thunder box is easily found up a marked trail. The initial trail up to the slightly elevated main site area is partially obscured by a large tree semi-recently down.
