Rock Lake – Campsite #14
This is the type of campsite that I really love. The campsite is situated on a point and is relatively exposed, but I like those types of sites. It’s in a narrow section between the islands, so even though it’s exposed in all directions, you never get the brunt of the wind directly at the site. It has beautiful views all around peripherally from the campsite, even though directly in front of the site faces Jean Island. The fire pit only has a little bit of seating, but it’s a nice fire pit. Right beside the fire pit are a handful of small tent spots ideal for summer weather, and then a bit inland there’s a more sheltered massive open flat area that would be able to accommodate several tents. At the front tip of the campsite is a massive flat rock, which in the summer is a dream for sunbathing, stargazing, and swimming… although it was funny doing the campsite report right after ice out and seeing that flat rock completely submerged underwater. Normally it’s exposed, and it’s the highlight of the site. Essentially this campsite offers the perfect balance of exposure, shelter, scenic views, good tent spots, and pretty much all of the other essentials that I look for in a campsite.
