This portage has been re-routed on the south side. Access is now on the west side of this bay before the start of the stream. Look for the orange flagging tape. A nice boardwalk has been built over a wet section approximately 200m north from the south side. Good job Park staff! The fork at the old route has been marked with flagging tape when going south to show the new way. Portage was cleared with a handsaw in May 2021.

No I didn't visit the portage but the park reported in the Fall of 2020 that the south 300M section has been bypassed, moved to the west of the creek and straight south from the existing portage to the unnamed lake bypassing the creek and beaver dam area that makes the south 300M section so muddy. Sounds good! I hope to see it for myself in 2021.

Call this the Jekyll and Hyde portage. The south end had knee deep sucking mud for about the first 300 yards. Had to pull the canoe through using a rope. Then it opened up into a hardwood stand and the portage was wide and unbelievably smooth. It makes a gentle rise until the north side where it drops off again into a wet section - wet but not kneep deep sucking mud. Hardest portage of our trip.
