My uncle Jack stopped camping there about two years ago. He used to take great care of that spot, but he is getting to old to go up anymore.

Too bad. People like your uncle are good friends of Temagami, but don't get credit for what they do. There are a few around who look after campsites and portages and trails. Our thanks to them.

I remember the BBQ on that site. The last time I was there, it was filled up with kindling and there was a neatly stacked pile of wood beside it.
No table or other junk around then....well except for the outhouse, but that one was put together with several old signs. I think I may have posted a picture of it somewhere here on ottertooth.
Haven't been over there since about 2007.

I am fascinated by the nastawgan trail map. I have recently bought one. It looks like Round Lake(Wawiagama) was an important hub for winter and summer travel. Does anyone have more specifics on the history of this area? My Dad always told me that a Native fellow named Charlie Moore and his family used to live on the west side of round in the sixties and seventies and go over to the lumber camp to trade fish for their bologna.

I am an old friend of a Moore, Rita O'Sullivan. She spent many years there. There were quite a few of the family living there, until L&F burned their cabins in the 1960s when they were away at Bear Island. I wonder how many of us would tolerate our family homes, with our possessions inside, burned by government?

I'll put this in this sub-forum, it seems the 'best fit' to me.
West Montreal River Provincial Park
Portage from Rankin Lake to Duncan Lake
After 10m the trail degrades to post holing through clearcut debris. After 600m the portage is re-established on a rock ridge for about 150m, then becomes quite elusive for several hundred metres until the logging road. The far side of the logging road (towards Duncan Lake) is blazed but the blazed trees are horizontal and although old flagging tape is also present only a determined bushwhack gets through to water. The Duncan Lake trailhead is flagged, but no trail is present.
It was four hours and 4.5kms of single carrying to complete the 1600m distance. Attachment (if it works) has a cleaned up version with trail seeking wanderings removed.

A lot can be done passing on this info. Thanks.

There have been a lot of blowdowns and winter knockdowns in the area the last two years. I did a lot of work on the upper Yorston River and Witch's Crossover in August. The last few years I have been carrying some light equipment so I can simply keep moving in some areas.

Solace/ Lady Evelyn Smoothwater PP
We did the 1470m portage between FLORENCE lake and BLUESUCKER lake August 2016. It's marshy but passable but the logs that are there to walk on are needing to be replaced. When we were there many of the logs were completely submerged in water.
