Portage Description:
We found the beginning of the portage as a muddy root hop. If you slipped of a root you were crotch deep. I had my 9 year old son with me and as I ferried my pack and canoe to dry land he did slip and got stuck waist deep. It was a grey day so a little more mud wasn't a huge deal. Once we got to the dry land this portage became a series of short steep ups and downs. More challenging due to the wetness. Half way across we heard a chain saw. We finished this portage and met a portage crew (chain saw noise solved).

Lake Description:

There are two campsites. The island site is the traditional Bentpine site. The other site is on the south side 0.5 km east from the island. In 2006 it had some deadfalls and I stayed on the island.
