This is a great option on Bonnechere. It sits along a rock wall that rises up from the water. It’s got great views and great swimming, and a nicely laid out site area as well.
Terrain: This is a large site that, conversely, has a small site proper. What this means is that the site goes back a long way along the wall, while the fire pit and at least one tent pad are nestled into a smaller clearing just below the rocks. The fire pit area is relatively flat and easy to navigate. The rest of the site rises gradually.
Canoe Landing: The canoe landing area is not immediately visible unless you’re coming from the Lost Shoe/McGarvey direction. Otherwise, you need to paddle around the tip of the point to see the wide, easy to access harbour area. There’s room here for a couple of canoes at least, and loading/unloading is convenient.
