Algonquin & Beyond

Manitou Lake – Campsite #6

This campsite is on one of the small islands in the north end of Manitou Lake. It shares the island with another campsite, and the two sites are so close by that in my opinion they should be reserved as one site. This site has the elevation, and has flat west-facing rocks by the water to enjoy the sunset and to stargaze. The nicest sunset I’ve ever seen in my life was actually from this campsite, and we later saw a glimpse of the northern lights as well. The interior of the site is on a slope, but it flattens out for the fire pit and seating area. There are a few small tent spot options, and exactly halfway between the two sites is a massive tent area. If you can use both sites together, you get the best of both worlds, but if you have to choose one or the other, it’s a bit of a toss up and I’d say comes down to personal preference. You can check out my report of Campsite #5 to see the pros vs. cons and the main differences, but both of them are spectacular sites in my opinion.

UPDATE: As of August 2022 it was reported that this island is infested with a large number of cockroaches.
