Ragged Lake – Campsite #2

Ragged Lake – Campsite #2

From what I’ve seen, this is the most recommended site on Ragged Lake. It’s in the north end of the lake, which is busy with other campsites, but it offers impressive views from the elevated rocky cliffs. The canoe landing is tucked away on the southern side of the site and then there’s a steep climb to the main campsite area. There’s ample seating around the fire pit (including two camping chairs left behind from a previous group who were too lazy to pack out what they packed in) and several flat patches of ground to accommodate multiple tents. Although it’s an exposed cliff site, it’s situated in the middle of a north/south narrow so it still offers protection from the predominant westerly winds with the relatively nearby western shoreline (compared to other larger areas of the lake). But really, the main reason to camp here is because of the amazing elevated views and the large open rock to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day.
