Another Whitefish Bay Campsite in the Montreal River area. It was Stone Campsites or Whitefish Bay II, I went with the other name this time. Years ago, this area was a stretch of the Trans Canada Highway, if I had to guess. The highway moved but somehow the stretch of highway has remained and been claimed by travellers like us for camping. You can still make out the white line divider on the pavement. A smaller site and two large campsites overlook Another one of Superiors fist sized rock beaches that seem prevalent in the area, but larger chunks of basalt also litter the area. I’ve never found a mess at these two sites although there were solar lights, firewood and a sign in board written on by the passing through voyagers. It looks like people who do stay over try not to leave too much of a mess, and keep the sites clean but there has been dumping of tires and other waste along the old road. Like always, crisp, clear, sparkling waters of Superior. Cold like your exes’ heart.
