Portage Description:
Difficult for 2 reasons. The portage is tough to find in the reeds and landing your canoe in the slopped mossy logs is a bit tricky. Once you've shouldered the boat watch for the rocks poking out just enough to catch your foot. Overall not bad considering we were on our way out.

Lake after portage: Sawbill
Known campsites: 8+
Lake Description:

Sawbill is a big lake with big wind potential. Lots of day trippers and campers. Clean lake but did no fishing.
