I love that the backpacking sites were added to paddle planner. I even have a fun story about this one. I attempted to use this lake as a launching point into the PMA. I portaged in (with a beaver pond paddle in between) from Parent. I ran into a (expectedly) surprised couple at the beaver pond right about sunset. I was planning on staying on a site and launching into the PMA the next day as I started at Snowbank after work. As the couple was backpacking instead of portaging, they passed me on the trail. I kept up though and we talked. Unfortunately, they chose the first campsite leaving the guy with the canoe on his shoulders to hike the extra quarter mile to the next site. Thanks guys.... All in all, though I was none too happy to still be portaging here in the dark, it is a nice site. It sits up on a ridge in a dense stand of Red Pine. Since most people don't have a canoe here, the utter lack of a canoe landing is probably not a problem nor is the lack of a place to store a canoe. It isn't a big site (standard fare for backpacking) but it has good cover and good elevation. It's a nice place to spend the night.
