North Depot Lake – Campsite #6

This site has a fantastic little beach and although its “shore appeal” is low, it opens up into a beautiful campsite that you can make into your temporary home very quickly. The fireplace is nice, but there was very little seating, only a single log when we visited. It did appear as though there had been other seating in the past that someone had burned (we saw it discarded half burnt in the bush). The beach has great swimming and tons of aquatic wild life. The entrance to the water is shallow with a fairly steep drop off. There are two tent pads, one small pad south of the fire pit (not pictured), and a larger one west of the fire pit that was able to accommodate our North Face six person tent. The thunder box was old and mossy but it was just fine and hidden privately down a small path. We stayed on this campsite for two nights and used it as a jumping off spot to day trip down into Radiant Lake. It is the second nicest site on the lake in my opinion.
