Portage Description:
I did this portage as part of a Scout trip in 1984. The scout leader made a (gross) navigational error and we took this portage instead of the one to Annie lake. This portage was not on our map. The portage was poorly maintained, steep, and very narrow, making canoes very difficult to carry.

Lake after portage: Calico
Known campsites: 1
Lake Description:

Small lake with a campsite next to an outlet from an even smaller lake, Barter lake. The outlet was plugged by a beaver dam. The campsite showed no evidence of recent use, but had a nice view of both lakes.
