Description

Super nice camping spot at a small lake. We watched the beavers working on their dam while having breakfast. Fire ring. Lots of bugs. Large spot which could fit a couple of campers.

Nice place! It is quiet even if we heard a little bit the traffic of the road. Some beavers should be here.

Nice little spot down a two track road about 700m. Private but buggy. Saw some shot gun shell casings and a couple of old fire pits. ATV trails head off into the bush.

Nous avons dormi ici une nuit avec un sprinter allongé et c'était parfait, même avec tous les moustiques!

We slept here with a long sprinter van and it was just perfect! Lots of mosquitoes, but we were alone by the lake 😍

Barren campsite, some garbage, no trailers, picnic table but there is a fire pit.
Great swimming spot, narrow entrance. Watch the corrugated tin.

BE BEAR AWARE! great spot at the lake but had curious visitor that woke us at night and left his paw prints on the car.

Trailer is gone. Some garage left behind but still a nice spot for a night or two.

Report Check-In

Two large trailers have taken over the spot. They look very settled, with outdoor furniture, firewood, etc. No cars there, just two trailers and a quad. Was going to stay the night but was worried owners of the trailers/quad would come back angry.

Definitely recommend vehicle with higher clearance from the ground/ a 4x4.

Beautiful secluded spot. Right off the highway. Fisherman’s dream. Lots of skitters. No carved chair anymore but a picnic table for 8. Nice big fire ring with a cook grill. Large spot could fit three vans/campers easy or a few tenters. Some highway noise in the evening.

Nice spot by the lake, trees overhang the road in but opens up nicely, no problem for van w/ high roof. Fire pit, table and a lot of space for a few vehicles.

Beware of bugs, lots of them.

Très bel endroit près du lac Melgun. Un peu de moustiques.

We stopped here last night, as previously said it is a lovely spot on the lake. Entrance is via a small track from the highway. We are a big rig and got in ok. Overhangs are not too bad and the site makes it worthwhile. One other car turned up whilst we were there.
As stated, lots of mozzies!

Report Check-In

Sounds nice but we didn't go in with our truck/camper due to the overhanging branches that left very narrow road in.

awesome place, nice view....very quiet and peaceful

Pretty nice spot, accessible. After my first night I shared the next two days/nights with an amazing group of locals who had two RVs that got in with no issue. I received some incredible hospitality from these folks, most of whom where Newfies. Fire ring, carved chair. There are other unpaved roads which might lead to other spots. Mosquitoes picked up a little as it got closer to dark but not severe by any means, probably worse as it gets warmer. Watched ducks on the lake. Saw muskrats, loons, and other birds but sadly didn’t get to see the beavers. Nice view.
