Phipps Lake – Campsite #2

Phipps Lake – Campsite #2

There are two campsites on Phipps Lake, however Algonquin Park only issues one permit for the lake. This means that if you’re booked for Phipps Lake, you get to choose between this site and Campsite #1. This campsite sits on top of a large sloped rock, with the fire pit located in an exposed spot close to the water. The tent spots are a little further back and offer a bit more shelter. The site isn’t very accessible in terms of landing/unloading your gear since you’ll need to climb everything to the top of the rock, but as a reward the campsite does offer a nice panoramic view onto Phipps Lake. The elevation of the site and its panoramic views are definitely nice, but I do think that Campsite #1 is the nicer site overall.
