Tanamakoon Lake – Campsite #6
I had mixed feelings about whether or not I liked this campsite when I visited it. I did like the fire pit situation and thought it was cool that it was located right in front of a tree, with some basic seating surrounding it. There was also a secondary smaller fire pit off to the side, but it’s not an official fire pit from the park so I wouldn’t recommend using it. The fire pit faces towards the water so it has a nice view out onto Tanamakoon Lake. There are about three different canoe landing options, none of which were good in high water levels but during the summer months they would probably be much more accessible. The campsite has a unique feel to it, but it definitely lacks tent spots. I found one patch of flat ground that would only be able to accommodate one tent. There may have been some more options that I didn’t see, but it’s something you should consider if you’re camping with a large group that requires multiple tent spots. Temporarily ignoring the lack of tent spots, the biggest appeal of this campsite is definitely its location on Tanamakoon Lake. It’s tucked away in the corner of the lake and it’s for sure the most private campsite on an otherwise not so private lake. If you’re coming to this lake and you want to feel even a little sense of remoteness, this would probably be a good option for you.
