Before long, there was talk of taking a swim.
Our campsite is tucked-away in Heron Cove.
We had our own dock for our canoes.
It definitely offers privacy.
A major factor here was the lack of motorboats, which was great for us in the canoe.
We paddled to the islands ahead, and eventually found ourselves in what felt like a tropical setting with a the water in the cove a light green.
We climbed back in our canoes and headed for Yard Islands.
Besides three tent platforms, we had a fire ring, our own outhouse and plenty of trees surrounding the site.
After setting up camp, we set out in our canoes to explore Squam Lake. Jon in front with Mike.
Waking up the next morning.
Mountains surround the lake, and the water is relatively calm for such a large body of water. Steve in front with Markus.
Around the campfire we heard the haunting calls of loons.
The primary boat launch is at the Squam Lakes Association. It’s your typical boat launch, with plenty of parking.
The water is incredibly clear, such that you can see 6-7 feet down.
Once we returned back to our campsite we began to cook dinner.
