McManus Lake – Campsite #1

This Campsite Report is a Guest Submission. The description and images are not my own so I cannot personally verify its accuracy. If you notice any errors, please let me know. If you want to submit your own Campsite Report, visit the submission page.

This campsite on McManus Lake is facing west/southwest. It’s the first campsite on the right-hand (northeastern) side of McManus Lake if you’re coming in from Access Point #21. From this campsite, you can look across to the beach campsite and the rocky campsite, as well you can see the access point. The entry has a climb up to the main site, but there is a second, more hidden entrance, that’s slightly more accessible a bit further to the left of the site marker. It’s fairly shaded and on the smaller side. The entry is sand/pebbly with some minor weeds. This site only has space for two tent pads, with one being tucked off on its own to the right, on the way to the thunder box. All of the sites that I visited on McManus Lake had bear cables to hang your food from (marked with a blue diamond saying ‘bear cable’). This site had a good mix of coniferous and deciduous, unlike the other sites I visited. All of the sites that I visited on McManus have the bear cable path to the left and the thunder box path to the right (when looking into the woods with the lake at your back). There is a nice seating area around the fire pit, but again, on the smaller side.
