Quiet location on south end of lake. Three tent pads and they all seemed reasonably good. Fire grate tucked in woods far enough back from lake to reduce wind, but still offer good views. The canoe landing is OK. Somewhat limited shoreline access.

Alton Lake Campsite 1
Near top notch canoe landing. View is to the north. The peninsula that is just east of the campsite is visible on the right. The Wonder Lake 200 rod portage is back in the bay, just on the otherside of this peninsula.

Alton Lake Campsite 2
Everyone has to cuddle together at this "one log" campsite.

Alton Lake Campsite 3
The largest tent pad spot.

Alton Lake Campsite 4
This tent pad is for those with small tents.

Alton Lake Campsite 5
This is a third tent pad. May be a few other areas worthy of tent pitching if you are creative.

Alton Lake Campsite 6
View from back of the campsite toward the lake.

Alton Lake Campsite 7
This latrine comes with a nice rock that can be used as a foot stool or a location to place your reading material.

View to the north/northeast.
