Large sprawling campsite at the north end of Bald Eagle Lake near the Turtle Lake portage. The campsite is set upon a huge, mostly level outcrop of basalt. There is lots of shoreline access at this campsite. Appears to be two tent pads, but with all the space, you can probably find another one or two places to pitch a tent. The fire pit has expansive views of the lake. The campsite seems to be fairly well protected unless the wind is strong out of the south or southeast.

Extensive basalt rocks create a massive relatively flat area of rock that underlies much of this campsite. Because of this, there are many good places to land your boat here.

Bald Eagle Lake Campsite 2
Plenty of room about the fire pit.

Another less than spectacular tent pad that sits up on a little ledge.

Notice the easily accessible shoreline from this campsite.

Bald Eagle Lake Campsite 8
This view is towards the southeast. That island is just over 1,000 feet away from the campsite.
