North Depot Lake – Campsite #4

This is the larger of the two campsites on the north island of North Depot Lake. It is in my opinion the best site on the lake. It would be ideal for a large group because it is absolutely massive. There is a reasonably sized fire pit with seating for ten. There is also a fairly large bushcraft table and shelf (if you are into that kind of thing). There is a beautiful beach with nice easy access to the water and great sand, which some kids had built an epic sand castle on. North Depot, much like Allan, is a great lake for people with young families and beginners. This site is a great destination on a 2-3 night trip from Access #25. I did not stay on this campsite because there was already a group there, but when they cleared I checked it out. There is one relatively new thunder box (shared with the smaller Campsite #5 on the island). There are many places to put your tent in the main opening, but also two more private tent pad locations within the site.

UPDATE: As of August 2023 it was reported that Campsite #4 and Campsite #5 each have their own thunder box.
