Portage Description:
The portage between Bayley Bay and Burke Lake is easy. A good but deceiving portage to start a trip and a welcome wide flat sandy portage to end a trip. It can be a bit of a highway entering Quetico. A nice sandy beach to bathe or camp on your way out to Prairie. Beach could hold several tents. On the Burke side there are 2 - 3 nice island camp sites, but get there early. Great smallmouth fishing on the Bayley Bay side. Check the coves to the left on your way back to prairie portage.
