LITTLE LAKE BOG
N 46°11.056’ W 082°49.297’
A parking lot right off the TransCanada leads into a short hiking trail through a cranberry bog. Hiking the trails in the fall I found incredible amounts of wild mushrooms and really enjoyed my walk. Unlike most of my locations there is no beach or swimming, but for me it was a wonderful change of pace. Signage informs you that it is an unsupervised area and there are none of those annoying ‘no overnight camping’ signs to be seen. I’ve never been a forager, but I’d imagine this location would be ideal for roots, mushrooms and obviously cranberries. A great spot to pull in for an afternoon and then spend the night.
If the clouds are a little too much for a day at the beach, this might be a great diversion as well. More of a location for hikers than beach lovers, if that’s not completely obvious.
I recommend camping by the gate, and there is ample room for a few vehicles or campers. The grass is also kept short so even just stretching out in a sleeping bag on a clear night to smoke a joint and watch the stars is nice.
