Lake Louisa Campsite #3
Topography of under-water approach: While its west side is comprised of steep rocks and deep water, it has a sloped rock landing on its south shore. If waves are rough at that location, the adjacent campsite's sand beach could be used in a pinch and the canoes/gear carried by trail to this campsite.
Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Rough surface of sloped rock landing requires care be taken upon disembarking and unloading.
Topography leading to tent sites: The landing's gently sloping rock quickly takes one up to the levelness of the campsite.
Regular or low-maintenance: Regular
Size of open ground area: Extensive large area under pine trees.
Extent of tree cover: 80% (but open to the wind off the lake)
Degree of levelness: Quite level.
Number of level tent sites: Very many!.
North exposure: Forest and shoreline of bay.
East exposure: Forest.
South exposure: Open to the lake.
West exposure: Open to the lake.
General description: The rock point, sandy beach and great view down the lake make this campsite a popular one, particularly in summer. The tentsites and firepit are rather exposed, but part of the site can be augmented with sheltering tarps.
Overall accessibility: Given its levelness and moderate trail from the beach, this campsite is quite accessible..
