Kitchen area is nice. Lots of blown down trees in the area. Site is further north than the maps indicate. Landing is good. Site sits up from the lake and can be breezy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWtsSRvucog

An underrated site that shouldn't be overlooked. A major rainstorm led us to setting up camp here for 2 nights and we're glad it did. We had 7 people and 4 tents. We had no problem getting all our tents up in a reasonable manner with some elbow room left to spare. A little rough around the edges, it was up on a rock ledge that looked over the water. There's only 1 site on Wagosh, so you basically have your own private lake. A beaver lodge was right next door and we enjoyed watching beavers swim to and fro. The printed maps have the location slightly incorrect. It is further north. Paddle Planner has it plotted accurately.

Good site with a nice view of the lake. The paddle planner map shows an accurate location compared to some other maps. The site is to the far north on the west shore. Rock shelf landing and elevated view of the lake.

We could not find this campsite. Maybe we could have looked harder but we pressed on to Gun Lake.

Campsite on a bluff overlooking the lake. The landing is a rock shelf - really deep right off the end. The campsite itself isn't remarkable. The kitchen was kind of broken down. At least room for one tent, maybe two.
