Hi,

Heading out this summer to Sugar, Goodfish and Agler. Just looking for any advice, tips, sites of interest along the way. Also, is there any sandy areas along the way? Always nice to play around on the beach for an afternoon!
I am already aware of the wind when entering Lady Evelyn...it is what it is.

Cheers

I don't know about sand within the Sugar lakes but there are the Dunes on Lady Evelyn. You can't camp there though.

The dunes are awesome. Paddled past them in fog and rain, very gloomy day. They were other-worldly. Tread lightly.

There's a small site on the E side of LE at the start of the narrows. Nice beach around the corner.

There's a great campsite on a rocky bluff towards the west end of Sugar. Great views and an awesome spot for swimming.

We travelled through the Muskego this spring. The campsite referred to is quite beautiful.

That's great! We'll definitely stop at the dunes.
Preacher - is the site with the beach visible from the narrows or is it further up the shore...left or right when you exit the narrows?

Cheers

The narrows site is...
Travelling W from LE
On the S shore of the narrows
Before the first big island and opposite a little island.
As you approach it's all sharp rocks & driftwood.

I spent some time in Sugar, Angler, etc last summer. If you haven't gone on your trip there yet, feel free to ask questions. I may be able to offer some first-hand advice. I swam in both Sugar and Angler, but don't recall any significant sandy areas.

The eskers on LE are awesome. It's a rookerie for several birds: herons, gulls, loons. My very presence there stirred them up and I had to fend off a Bonaparte Gull that didn't want paddling within a hundred yards of their nest. The noise back there was pretty impressive.

Here's the same campsite pictured above, but from the water. There is a larger site on a higher bluff, just a little west of this one.
