Pretty nice site up above the water. Had a very difficult time with the wind coming up the west side of the site where the big rock slab leads straight up to camp. The canoe landing to the east of the site is the way to go if you stay here. We had to hide down by the landing to hang out because it was so wet and windy up at the fire grate area. Would be a much better site if the weather was better.

An amazing site. Elevated and open, but easy access to the water for landing on the east and south sides. Plenty of sun. Will stay here again soon.

Really nice campsite if the weather cooperates! It's nice and open on a raised point, great views! We had a strong west wind the whole weekend with some snow added in, so the fire ring and cook area was really exposed. Because of the wind we weren't able to do much fishing from the canoe but we still managed to find a few walleyes, fishing right from camp. We only saw one other canoe the whole weekend, but I think that was mostly due to the weather.

We were fortunate to stay on this gem of a site on Little Carribou to finish out our 3N loop from East Bearskin. This site is up on a little penninsula, so canoe storage isn't easy, but it's do-able. Two snakes greeted us upon arrival on the loading/unloading rocks by the site! Great trees for hammocking by the water, amazingly spacious cooking area and tenting area. Great, elevated views of Little Carribou from this site. Several groups passing by into the early afternoon, but then traffic stopped and it was very peaceful. Surprisingly good fishing on Little Carribou, too.

Beautiful site positioned well above the water. You have to be a mountain goat to get up to the site, but it is worth it. There was a giant downed tree blocking the landing when I was there, so I had to improvise. Due to the popularity of this site, be prepared to answer to answer the many questions of those that pass by.

Great site. Didn't see anybody else, all day long. The portage into/from Clearwater is a beast.

I love this site. Nothing better than being the only people on the lake. Elevated the perfect amount. Still room to fish off shore, great firepit area. Great Kitchen area. Close to Johnson Falls was also a huge plus.
