Galeairy Lake Campsite #20
Topography of under-water approach: Mucky bottom leading to a sloped dirt take-out.
Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: A medium-sized rock and dirt bank provide an unloading area.
Topography to tent sites: An upward slope takes one to the firepit area. The tentsites are quite a distance away and further uphill.
Regular or low-maintenance: Regular
Size of open area: An open level area around the firepit is approximately 10 x 20 feet, immediately alongside the shoreline.
Extent of tree cover: Pine trees provide a moderate canopy over most of the campsite.
Degree of levelness: Beyond the shoreline firepit area, there are only a couple of somewhat level tentsites. Between these areas are markedly unlevel differences in height.
Number of level tent sites: 2 tent sites.
North exposure: Looks across the narrow bay that leads to the portage to Night Lake.
East exposure: Down to the lake's larger bay.
South exposure: Dense forest.
West exposure: A narrow view down the bay toward the portage.
General description: The proximity of the bay's north shore limits any substantive sunset view. The campsite's slope up to the tentsites and even further up to the thunderbox makes for a lot of climbing about. This isn't a particularly sunny or breezy campsite.
Overall accessibility: The pronounced 'climbing about' requires giving this site a "poor" for accessibility .
