This campsite on Mole Lake isn’t the worst site, but it’s also not that great. The canoe landing is free of rocks and has a small incline. Your feet can stay dry while loading and unloading gear from/into your canoe. Since the campsite is located down McCarthy Creek, it can get quite buggy. The campsite is on the portage trail to Raja Lake, but it doesn’t seem to be an overly used site. There is a nice fire pit and a tent spot located near by. There is also a small trail leading to another pad for a single tent. The upper level of the campsite has room for two double tents, but it would be a tight fit. The thunder box is close to the tent pad on the upper level. If you’re going down McCarthy Creek to get to this campsite, you will have two small dams to go over, as well as a log jam to go around. We paddled around looking for the other campsite on Mole Lake, but weren’t able to find it. If you have Mole Lake booked, this may be the only operating campsite to stay at.
