Portage Description:
This is the first portage from the parking lot. Proceed down the north side of the lake. The portage is not visible until you're very close. It's in a little inlet at the northwest corner. Put out through some rocks and then follow the side of a beaver pond. It's a flat portage but not wide. There are boards on the wet spots so it's an easy one to make. I've tried to get through the beaver pond but the far end is very dense so it's more work than just taking the portage. Easy put-in on West Round.

Lake after portage: West Round
Known campsites: None at all
Lake Description:

West Round is a little pothole. You're just going to get in and go straight across. You can see the next portage from the put in.
