Grace Lake in Killarney – Campsite #203

Aesthetically, this campsite on Grace Lake is about as good as it gets. The campsite is one massive chunk of rock on a point facing west. It has the most postcard-perfect view down the length of Grace Lake with a large, open, exposed campsite area. The fire pit is unique, though without any surrounding seating. And the canoe landing is basically a perfectly shaped runway. However there are two big downsides of this campsite. The first is how exposed the site is. I camped on this site on a windy day, and the wind hits the site with full force. The second is that since the campsite is just one massive chunk of rock, it’s basically impossible to properly peg down your tent. There are a few really small tent spots and they’re situated on top of rock so you’ll need to weigh down the corners of the tent to keep it stable. But overall, this is a warm weather mid-summer campsite, and in those conditions it’s an absolutely beautiful place to spend a few nights.
