We have been to Lake Superior Provincial Park a few times and only camped at the Agawa Bay campground. We know the campground well and have met up with a group of friends over the years. We have used that camp as a base to explore the park but had missed a hike or two that started at Rabbit Blanket. This year, due to COVID-19, our friends were unable to join us. We looked at Rabbit Blanket and found a couple of sites that could work for us. We reserved them as campsites were disappearing quickly with the number of Ontario campers out this year. We found a good site with a lake view and a short trail to the lake from the camp.
As we wander the campground after setting up I saw the guy above trying to impress without success. He was handsome to us though.
We didn’t have time to hike Peat Mountain as that was a long hike and we only had one day there because the campground was full. It’s a shame that we had to move on.
We checked some boondocking websites that we follow which show places to camp for free. Not all of them are gems we’ve found. We stopped at this one and found the abuse of the land has taken its toll; like many of them. I don’t mind the vintage abandoned vehicles as that gives character. The one in the photo above was stuffed with garbage. The trash bags were new enough but I could see that animals had already started to explore the contents.
Off to Pancake Bay.
We arrived at Pancake Bay Provincial Park with plenty of time to find a nice site by the water. I am not fond of making reservations as Ontario Parks charges an additional $9.73 per reservation for the privilege. This year has been Special and we’ve had to reserve for most of the sites as the volume of campers has increased tremendously. We still managed a good site.
