Hi all.i am doing a short trip on the western uplands trail at the end of August staying on Ramona lake the first night and maggie lake west the second night before returning to the trail head. Anyone know what site is best along the west side of maggie? Not sure what the east west dividing line is. Thanks in advance.

Hey Dan

2 things

Just my 2 cents but I don't really like the Ramona sites. Sorry. Boggy no real swimming access. Most eastern site is likely the best of the lot. Maybe consider an alternative lake just my opinion.

Maggie.. never stayed on the west side.. I can confirm this site is good though. Beach area and points to sit out on and look over the lake.

There's a site underneath the circle on the right side of the above screenshot. The site to the right of that one tucked back in a bay area is also nice. I've camped there twice. Decent beach and rocks to sit on.

Not sure what the east west dividing line is.

The dividing lines are shown on the FOAP Backpacking Trails map. As far as I know you'll have to get your hands on a physical copy.

When it comes to canoe tripping sites that are broken down by section of lake or river, the FOAP map omits this information while Jeff's map makes it clear, but for backpacking it's the other way around.

I was also wondering about which sites are classified as East or West. I do have the FOAP map in front of me, and there is no dividing line, or notations regarding this. However, when you go to reserve a campsite, the Ontario Parks page lists 8 campsites under the West side and 5 for the East. This would mean that the cluster of 3 sites on the east side and the 4 on the southeast side must fall under East, (2 must be non-reserve) thus leaving the remaining 8 sites (mostly west side and north side) to be the West ones. Anyone else concur?

Jen, which FOAP map are you looking at? The canoe routes map or the backpacking trails map? I don't have the latter with me at the moment but I really thought I remembered seeing the lakes marked up with lines where they're divided up for reservation purposes...

I've done the route you are planning and I agree with Shawn about Ramona. Wasn't impressed. I would suggest pushing on to Panther or EU for your 1st night. This would shorten your 2nd day as well which I found a little long. But you're probably younger than me.

I agree with Dave and Shawn regarding Ramona. I have camped on EU Lake and it is a pretty beautiful spot. I've never been to Panther so I'm not sure how this compares...

Cheers,
Rich

@Dan - I tried adding them but it was too messy. That said, I'm considering making a dedicated backpacking map at some point and would certainly add the indicators then
