Welcome Lake – Campsite #1
This campsite seems to be the popular choice on Welcome Lake. It’s got a massive beachfront with a large chunk of elevated rock at the campsite end of the beach (with an epic lounging rock chair). A quick walk through the forest takes you to another massive beach just southeast of the site. A short trail from the primary beach leads up to the main campsite area, which is relatively small and pretty simple. There’s one large exposed tent area beside the fire pit and one or two more, smaller spots even closer to the fire pit. There isn’t much seating around the very average fire pit, but if you’re travelling with camping chairs this isn’t a big deal. There was plenty of wood surrounding the site, and the thunder box was a short walk away. If you like beach, open rock, and sunset views, this is an epic site. But if you like shelter, multiple tent spots, and spacious interiors, this may not be your favourite.
