Rock Lake – Campsite #6
I wasn’t crazy about this campsite when I visited. It’s definitely unique so it gets points for that. Like many others on Rock Lake it has a big sloped rocky shoreline with lots of boulders (careful when wet!). But it’s very steep and the campsite is a decent bit inland which I didn’t like. It would be ideal for shelter in bad weather, but would be brutal during bug season. It’s a pretty stark contrast to the nearby Campsite #7 where the fire pit is literally a couple feet away from the water. There are a few tent spots available to accommodate small to medium sized tents, but I probably wouldn’t want to attempt pitching an oversized tent. I won’t say it’s not scenic, because it definitely is, but for some reason I still wouldn’t feel inclined to camp at this site. It especially wouldn’t be my first choice for a campsite while travelling solo. It’s not that it’s a bad site necessarily, just compared to other campsites on Rock Lake, I would much rather stay at some of the others. I did find it a bit funny how I always say I love rocky shorelines and sheltered interiors, but for some reason this campsite didn’t tick that box the same way that most others do for me.
