I've noticed some changes since my last trip along this route several years ago. There is now a very large green "cottage" complete with a dock, on the small lake west of WhitewaterL. It was a disappointing find. I used to consider this route to be somewhat "back country". Does anyone know when this "cottage" was built?

That camp was there when I paddled through in 1999. Maybe they've made an addition? It has road access off of the Eagle Lake Road. I suspect it would be leased, not patent land.

I met the owners of this camp last summer.
They call it a "Hunt Camp", but it is really an actual cottage.
It is an L.U.P. - not patent land, and has decent road access. When I met theses guys, they had driven in with a Suzuki SUV.

I don't like coming across these camps when out on a canoe trip either, but unfortunately, L.U.P. camps are common throughout Temagami and the rest of Northern Ontario.

I own the camp you are talking about. It has been our camp for 40 years plus.It is on leased land not a lup. I also enjoy canoeing in the back country.

Interesting that you got a lease, not an LUP. How did MNR decide between giving you one or the other?

It was a LUP years ago. MNR was offering the option to purhase or in some cases change to a crown lease. We had it surveyed and went with the crown lease.

When I paddled through there around 2002 I don't recall that place being quite so large and brand new looking. Was it maybe hidden by more foliage and trees back then? I'm sure I would've at least remembered the dock!

How did you find it in the first place? Are leases and LUP's advertised somewhere?

The camp was hidden by more follage back then.It is the same size it has been for years just a few layers of new stain added. The dock was added around 2004-2005. My dad found this location years ago. I have seen LUP and leases advertized for sale in local papers a few times.
