Great area! We portaged back into one of the most remote campsites for more "wilderness" camping. It was very isolated yet there is a pitcher pump, outhouse and picnic table - pretty cushy for a wilderness camp. Nice fire rings, no grates and plenty of down firewood near camp. We hit the world's worst week of mosquitoes but I'm sure they're not always that bad. I'd definitely go back.
It is indeed "Pretty Lake"!!!! We got out of our vehicle and were greeted with the sounds of loons. This is an incredibly beautful area.....remote, quiet, easy portages to four other lakes. We saw a few folks cavorting on the beach, there is a campground there, at Pretty Lake, but once we left that lake it was us and only two other kayakers. Loons on one other lake and an eagle flew into view on our way back across Pretty Lake. Nice campsite, we picked blueberies, on another lake that has three sites and an outhouse. That would be a great place to set up camp and paddle there and the other lakes. You have to take a dirt/gravel road to get to area, but it is in pretty good shape and well worth it. I would go back to the area very frequently if it weren't so far away from home.....five hours.
