We battled the wind all day long, and found filled campsite after filled campsite on Bass. The group was tired while nearing the end of their first day when we arrived here. This site was a cramped and wouldn't fit our two tents in the tent pads. We passed and headed up towards the portage.

Didn't stay here but did see a bear here on our way up to Basswood Falls. Fought the wind there, might be a rough place to stay due to the way it sits. Here's the video:
