Is that the Greenstone in the background?

Yes,

NW corner of Ryan Island; the largest island, in the largest lake, on the largest island, in the largest lake in the world!
We took a break there before heading to Wood Lake camp.

Well that was a lucky guess :D . I've paddled by the south shore of Ryan Island and it doesn't look near as hospitable!

The trees should be a hint. And I think the first pic of this campground.

Ingo, that looks like Hatchet Lake?

I thought it looked familiar. I think I have camped at that site at least once.

I am posting a picture that may be really easy or hard, depending on your curiosity. It is a campground.

Good one! No idea where this is, but it's the most unique picture I've seen yet.

The engine is in some sort of shed. I'm sure that's a clue.

I believe it's a generator that used to run a navigation light.

I bet Ingo knows where this is! The picture is the shed that houses the motor. The clue will probably make this too easy. I heard this was where the park headquarters was before moving to Mott Island.

Are you referring to the campground in Rock Harbor/Snug Harbor? It is a good guess but not correct. We have seen a picture with this campground already, if that helps. I will post another picture/clue soon!

Yep. I figured it just may be in a campground that almost everybody has been to at one time. You can walk by something so many times you almost forget about it.

You can't walk to this campground, you could swim though. Another picture to help!
