Looking at my Temagami Canoe Route Map there are 7 campsites on the main part of the lake and 1 on the eastern arm. 3 of the seven are on islands 2 of the islands are small and 1 larger island in the north east part of the main lake, on the northern shore there is a small and a large campsite close together. Hope that helps.

The large campsite is all grass and is level but the shore is not that great with vegetation growing close to water's edge (gravel bottom and it becomes deep quickly as far as I can remember- was there in 1990)

You should try to head straight for Wasak if you can as Olier doesnt have a campsite and the 1 or 2 island campsites on Denedus are small.It should only take a few hours from the access road but if time is running out there is a spot right where the portage to Wasak from Denedus begins.Its a nice place to cool off in the rushing stream and a good place for your sons to do some catch and release bass fishing from the shore.There is room for a few tents, the ground may not be as level as most other sites but the sound of the water will put you right to sleep.

I did that same trip last August with 8 people. The island in the north west corner of Wassak is awesome and has a nice large site to stay on. Fishing off the estern edge of that island was brilliant. We caught a bunch of Bass one after the other. Denedus and Olier were pretty lakes to visit for the day. As far as traffic goes we saw little of it but we were there in late August.
