Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Although relatively short, this portage was pretty rough. Several steep hills and tall rocky areas to portage. The Otto Lake end was pretty boggy and made it a pretty difficult area to load and get into the canoe. May be better when the water level is lower or higher.

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

Very private lake with only 2 campsites. The campsite on the North end was nice, up on a bluff with big white pine trees. Very quiet lake. The East end was hit pretty bad in the blowdown.
