The whole campsite has a slightly overgrown look to it. This site probably doesn't get a ton of use. There are three brushy tent pads. Slippery canoe landing. Fire pit is on a nice little rock platform with pleasant view of Carl Lake. This is not a heavily traveled route and this is the only campsite on this lake. You should be able to find some solitude here.

Carl Lake Campsite 1
The landing at this campsite is a sloped rock. The water is deep at the base of this rock and the underwater portion of the rock slab is slick as snot with algae by midsummer. Makes for some trouble getting in and out of the canoe.

Fire pit is on this raised platform of rock.

Mildly overgrown tent pad back in the bushes.

Carl Lake Campsite 5
Another overgrown tent pad. The grass can make it a bit softer and more comfortable.
