Campsite adjacent to the portage between Ima and Alworth. Poor water access except at the portage end on Alworth side. Fire grate and camping are up somewhat steep slopes from the water. Beyond that, a decent site. Must have been some blowdown in the past few years - but a good option to escape the traffic on Ima in peak season.

Good campsite, access to both Alworth and Ima. Mosquitoes were bad due to still waters and no breeze. Kitchen and fire bowl were very nice. Tent pads were flat. Portage was blocked, trees down around the area made it diffcult to access from Ima. Use down tree for Bear bag.

This campsite is directly off the portage from Ima to Alworth lakes. Your landing is the portage itself which is crappy on the Ima side but decent on Alworth. Good tent sites with a decent kitchen area. Plenty of trees for tarps and Hammocks. Fairly protected site with the landing on the Ima site being in a small enclosed bay. Privacy could be an issue as you're directly on the portage, but I can't imagine that Alworth gets a lot of traffic with there being no through route out of it. I don't see Muzzle Lake being a prime destination point. :)
