Portage Description:
A medium-length portage (40 rods?), it rises steeply from the takeout on Ogishkemuncie and then flattens out to Skin Dance. It was in poor condition when we used it in late June: muddy, grassy, and a couple of holes in the path. Obviously not a high-traffic portage.

Lake after portage: Skin Dance
Known campsites: 2
Lake Description:

We only came to Skin Dance Lake because all the campsites on Ogish were occupied. A nice lake, but the campsite we stayed at had been pretty trashed by the '99 windstorm.
