A friend and I started our trip at cable cove boat ramp where we launched or kayaks. The paddle across the lake to proctor was calm and relaxing. Upon our arrival at proctor we were met with several fat drunks with beer coolers that had just been unloaded by the shuttle from the marina. These guys draged thier coolers to the nearest location to put a tent so thank god we didn't have to camp near. The hike up Hazel Creek was an easy walk up a gravel road this is not a trail. The walk was outstanding and easy what a beautiful location. We walked to campsite 83 pitched our tents and went looking for trout. The next day was spent walking the area to Bone valley and beyond. This area is wonderful the the hike is we'll worth the effort. I do recommend not camping at proctor it's just not the wilderness experince.
