Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Unremarkable portage with good footing and not much elevation change. Put-in and take-out points are easy to find and easy to negotiate. The Morgan end of this portage is a bit muddy but there are logs to walk on alongside a channel for the canoe.

Lake after portage: Morgan
Known campsites: None at all
Lake Description:

Morgan Lake is 82 acres and 46 feet deep. The water is tannin-stained like the other lakes in this area and it holds a huge number of 1-4 pound northerns. This is a great place to take a kid fishing. Just throw a lure beside one of the downed trees and hold on. The northerns aren't large, but there are plenty of them to keep you busy.
