Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
A real backbreaker if you've come a long distance. Still hard if you haven't. Steep and rocky. You think it's gonna level off, then it goes up some more. Hanson to Cherry tough, rocky and uphill. Cherry makes it worth it, at least before the storm.

Lake after portage: Cherry
Known campsites: 2
Lake Description:

Cherry is quite a gem-but I heard some blowdown problems after the storm. Excellent pix from high palisade near mid-channel site. Other site very nice in western bay. Some smaller smallies in this lake and a few northern. Some decent smallie fishing in Cherry and Topaz/Amoeber
