We are taking our youngest paddler for a week trip in Chiniguchi this August. Something I have never paid attention to: are there any sites with easy water access, sandy or otherwise? I know of McConnell bay and one smallish site at the northern end of McCarthy bay. Anything else?

Tough assignment finding that. There is one on the southwest corner of Caribou Island and the Old Keewaydin site, but both are too close to McConnell.

Thanks again, Brian! These 2 Chiniguchi lake sites are great advice - this way we can avoid McConnell, which is too busy/noisy for my liking. Always wanted to spend a night at Keewaydin site. Silvester island is nice and unusual, but it has almost no tree cover and no protection from elements, which is important for us.

Northernmost site on Wolf Lake- we used to call it the lagoon, a nice shallow small bay just before the portage. Not sand but gently sloping bedrock as I recall.
