Misty Lake – Campsite #6

Misty Lake – Campsite #6

Even though I hadn’t seen pictures of this campsite prior to my trip, I had heard it was nice so it was the campsite I was hoping to camp on. It’s a large spacious site on the north side of the large island, in the north end of Misty Lake. The proper landing is on the north side, although the rocky beach on the west end can be confused for the landing at first. The proper beach landing is extremely accessible and provides an easy way to load and unload your boat. Inside the campsite there’s a decently built fire pit with adequate seating, with several flat tenting options scattered around. On the north side of the site, it slopes up to a cliff face that offers great sunset views, and on the west side of the site, it slopes down to a rocky beach shoreline. There was an insane amount of moose poop that I had to be very careful not to accidentally step in. Even though I didn’t see a moose that night, they obviously visit this site very frequently. This site has a lot to offer and there aren’t many downsides; if you’re camping on Misty and it’s available, I’d take it.
