Lean-tos were empty, looks like. Did you use one, or tent it?

I was in hammock camping, but stayed at the Clear Pond and Split Rock Leanto sites. Both were empty, as was Lilypad and Grizzle Ocean.

Thanks Justin. Crane was pretty busy when I came out Friday morning. Split Rock was a nice place to be when the weather cleared. I hope we get to meet up sometime.

Absolutely beautiful!

I can almost hear the mosquitos at the Grizzle Ocean marsh.

Thanks very much. Yes, at the campsite on the far east end. My neighbors (the bullfrogs) were noisy all night!

Nice! I camped there a few weeks ago. Bullfrogs, loons, owls, whitetail deer, weasels.... I've never seen nor heard as much wildlife in one spot before. That's a nice campsite too.

No loons or weasels (that I know of) when I was there. There was a beaver that cruised by a couple of times and slapped his tail at me.
