Portage Description:
The series of portages taking you from William lake to Darky River were difficult to find and tough to navigate through. The wet grass marsh area makes the portages longer than the map indicates esp. in low water conditions. Be sure to have your bearings on point when searching for these portages they are not easy to find. the first portage to an un-named lake is to the left of the stream bed not the right. It's a wild frustrating ride if you bushwhack. And the lily pads can be arduous to paddle through as well.

Known campsites: not sure
Lake Description:

Zero campsites. Be sure to be through this area well before dusk and try not to take chances especially if your headed down Darky River into Minn Lake. Darky River does not have any campsites either. A group of 2-3 may be able to manage.
