I just returned from an epic trip on Caribou Lake (entered via EP62 Clearwater). In case anyone is looking at the online map or the McKenzie map, please note that campsite #5 is NOT immediately by the middle portage on Caribou. It is about 150 yards to the west of the portage.


I took a photo of this for reference. Campsite on left, portage on right.

Good info Kayaktom, I always wondered why this site was not shown on the map. We stayed there many years ago and wondered if it was supposed to be closed but there was no signage and it didn't look closed.

We loved the campsite for the exposure to the lake by the firegrate, found 3 good enough tent pads for small tents and found the sunrise views amazing and the small island out front made for some nice photo opportunities.. Not to mention the fishing from shore. It's a great but smallish site and as you said, convenient for a daytrip to Pine and Johnson Falls.

The upper falls at Johnson Falls, the one that some folks miss cuz they don't know it is there.
