WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

I took a guess at #251, it was a terrible guess, but that still meets Brian's suggestion that someone who took a shot at #251 jump in.  Apologies for the photo quality, these are photos of photos, but even so I don't think this will go very long without being identified.  Both are of the same location, just one photo is closer in than the other.  Photos from around  - 1990-1991, but this campsite really looks the same today as it did then.  What lake?  If you know the lake, then you very likely know the site.

That's not the north shore of Louisa, is it?

Two guesses, two misses.  I think that makes this officially the longest lasting photo I've posted.  Of the two guesses, Ralph Bice is closer.

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

Hmmm. Does this lake only have one site?

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

Not Wenona or Moccasin.  Moccasin is a good guess though it does look a lot like the site on Moccasin you're thinking of.  Moccasin is closer to it than Wenona, This lake has more than one site.

Well my guess is close to Moccasin but Cranebill only has 1 site so I'm out.LOL!

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

OK, since I was close (well, closer)... I'm going to guess Little Trout.

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

Not Cranebill.  Not Little Trout, but Little Trout and Moccasin are about the same distance from it.

Clydegale?

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

 Not Clydegale.  This lake is easiest to access from Magnetawan or Rain.  (but is not Magnetawan or Rain!).

Islet? The site by the portage into Hot?

Re: WIA 252 - Time Capsule Photo

Not that site (or lake) - but I did stay at that site once a long time ago.  The destination we are looking for is a bit to the west.
