Algonquin & Beyond

Queer Lake – Campsite #7

Ok, this is officially the most overgrown campsite I’ve ever personally seen in Algonquin. It literally looks like it hasn’t been used in 10 years. When approaching the site, I saw the large slabs of slanted rock at the shoreline and thought “this has the potential to be an awesome site”. The large slabs of rock are indeed cool, but the site itself is tiny, exposed, and incredibly overgrown. The grass was so thick and tall, but at least it would make for soft grounding for your tent. Silver lining, right? The only real pro of this site, other than the rocky shoreline, is the fact that it faces east and is one of the only campsites on the lake completely out of view from the other campsites. So it does offer privacy at least. But yeah, I wouldn’t want to camp here.
