You are correct treeplanter! These two pictures are for Ingo and would have been my next clues, in reference to Ingo's earlier picture at Caribou Island. They were taken one day apart. Treeplanter you're up!

No guesses? Hint #2, water-access camp only (that's part of a dock you see on the far left edge of the picture).

Hay Bay camp.

I haven't camped there, but, hope to.

No, not Hay Bay (though I would like to go there someday).

Looks like Caribou again. If not, there's a twin sister out there :).

It doesn't look very bad here, but canoeing in I lost the horizon in the troughs of the waves a couple times.

I think I have a good guess but I have already had more than my share of pictures on this thread. Ingo, is this a portage?

Yes, a portage and a campground--that should narrow it down :)

I've been here, but, like Kolo, will let somebody else answer.

I'm sure people will be able to Pick out a few clues, if they think about it.

There are only 4 of us keeping this thread going; if we all let another guess no one will go.

Pickerel Cove.
