Description:

This area is within the 2018 Nadina Wildfire, an access update will be posted in 2019

Peninsula Lake is moderately sized. There are many pine covered peninsulas that the lake wraps around. The portage into the lake is approx 500m and a good set of rugged canoe wheels would help to ease the burden. The portage puts you into some narrow channels at the east end of the lake. There are some small old beaver dams that need to be crossed in the channel before getting to the main part of the lake, but they pose no problem.

There are no directional or trail head signs for this site, use your map and GPS.
