Where in Algonquin? No. 256

Where is this campsite smack-dab in the middle of a canoe route?

Looks a little like Iagoo but doesn't seem like enough water.

Not Iagoo...
...but I did camp there once back in July 2011. Would you believe we swam in that leech swamp of a lake? It's amazing what a hot day of portaging will make you do. (But to be fair, we took the canoe out to the middle then swam around there - still though, yuck.)

Great guess! Same concept, but not there.

Not Tim River at Little Trout Creek.

Hint:
This campsite has something very specific in common with only 10 other campsites in Algonquin Park.

One of the campsites on the crow river by "the forks" where it splits into white partridge creek?

I once heard it said you don't want to stay here unless you have to. But, it is has a beautiful view in the morning!

And the lake you were trying to get to that night is named after one interesting dude. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Not Bissett Creek or the Crow R.

You wouldn't 'plan' to stay here, that's for sure. But it is a nice spot.

Re: Where in Algonquin? No. 256

Do not have a clue ...
But my canoe was never stashed farther away from the water than my tent . 
If I was worried about it being blown away during the night,
ensuring it was tied to a tree would allow me a good nights sleep :-)

Raccoon you just created a hint inadvertently.

I agree with you, so in what scenario would the set up in the pic make the most sense?
