Bower Trout Lake Campsite 1
Two places to land canoes at this campsite, neither is very good. This is the one to the left of the triple-trunked cedar tree as you face the lake.

Bower Trout Lake Campsite 2
This is the landing to the right of the triple-trunked cedar tree. This side seemed a little better.

Look for that triple-trunked cedar tree to find this campsite from the lake. Paddling up to the rocky landing at this campsite.

Bower Trout Lake Campsite 3
Canoe parking area down by the lake. Note the two sets of triple-trunked cedar stands. Look for these from the lake if you are trying to find this campsite. The campsite is not easy to see when out on the water. The fire grate is up a trail (behind you from this viewpoint) and is not visible from the lake.

Bower Trout Lake Campsite 4
The kitchen as you approach it from the lake. Only one decent sitting log. The log on the left is rotted out.

Bower Trout Lake Campsite 5
Another view of the fire grate area, this time looking toward the east.

This campsite is difficult to see from the lake. Look for the two stands of triple-trunked cedar trees. This is a rather poor campsite. Would do in a pinch for those arriving late or those wanting to get an early exit the next day. One (maybe two) tent pads. Only one log bench for sitting. Not much of a view of the lake from the fire pit area. Could be buggy. Latrine is up a hill down a short, overgrown path.

Looking toward the west from this viewing angle. This area at your feet could be used as a tent pad.

Bower Trout Lake Campsite 8
This is the best of this campsites two tent pads.

A somewhat overgrown trail leads up a hill to the latrine.
