Baskatong Lake Campsite 1
Slab rock landing with a little gravel, which actually helps with the footing. Water is shallow with a slow grade, so its an easy spot to beach canoe. View is toward the south end of the lake.

A sparse campsite on the east shore of Baskatong Lake in the BWCA. As of last visit, this was the only campsite on the lake (May 31, 2021). The campsite on the west shoreline is no longer usable.

Baskatong Lake Campsite 2
Bare bones campsite. No large trees in the area, so food pack hanging is not practical.

Baskatong Lake Campsite 3
View of the fire pit area looking in the direction of the lake. Here you are looking to the west.

Baskatong Lake Campsite 4
You can't be too choosy here. This is the only reasonable spot to pitch that tent.

The fly attractor. Just up the hill from the main campsite area. Bring sunscreen.
