Easy to see if this is open from the Alder-Canoe portage. Shallow landing makes for decent water access, though the long shallow section makes for mediocre shore fishing potential. Very nice view above the lake. No excellent tent pads - the best is near the landing, but it's a low point, so will get a lot of runoff if it rains. The rest of the pads have a mixture of roots and rocks or a significant slope. Plenty of great hammock spots though. Enjoyed my stay here. Make sure you visit Paddle - an absolutely striking gem of a lake.

Landing is a little tight and rocky. This is a very shady spot with lots of cover (great if you're expecting rain, not so great if you're looking for some sun). Two decent tent pads near the fireplace and another a little ways back. Plenty of spots for hammocks. The latrine was getting full when we were there.

An excellent site, open and elevated, with lots of southern and eastern exposure rocks down to the water for catching morning and midday sun. Caught a Smallie big enough to eat just off the campsite.

Nice open yet private campsite with good morning sun and plenty of afternoon shade. Campsite is raised up a bit with great veiws of the lake from the fire ring. Laterine is also relativly close but private. Also a great spot to land a canoe or two. Paddle lake is also accessable from the campsite. We weren't able to catch any fish on Canoe or Paddle but caught some bass right by the portages (leading from Canoe) on both Crystal and Alder. Would definatley stay here again! NOTE: Be careful with hanging food, squirrels were able to get into our bear bag a couple times despite trying our best to keep them out (seems like people have fead them). We ended up having to take our food with us when we would leave camp.

Decent site. Could probably have an extra tent pad but it would down hill, and would get wet when it rains? Whoever stayed there before us in during the first week of June 2015 cut lots of live cedars and peeled bark off live birch.. Still a nice site with great views of the lake and access to surrounding lakes. We couldn't catch a single fish in Canoe, but did very well on the surrounding lakes for Smallies and Lake Trout.
