Little Magaguadavic Lake: An Island of Your Own!
Only a short paddle from Gut-A-Moose Lodge, is a small island that is ideal for camping. The island has a small spot along its granite strewn shoreline where it is safe to bring a canoe in and there is a cleared area under the tall pine trees that makes life easy for you. I have used this location on more than one canoe trip to the Lake!
In the summer evenings, the Loons put on an amazing display with their eerie cries echoing across the Lake. On one of the occasions when I stayed there, I saw twelve Loons calling back and forth to each other! With the sun slowly setting, it was the essence of the Canadian wilderness - all there just for the taking! Camping on an island also has the advantage that you do not have to worry about bears and raccoons raiding your camp at night!

Little Magaguadavic Lake: I Hope It Does Not Rain!
The ground in this open area of the island is covered with pine needles from the huge Eastern White Pines that grow here and used to cover the entire province before the Royal Navy needed them for masts in the Napoleonic Wars! The tree limbs in this spot have been trimmed enough that you can enjoy a pleasant breeze off the lake as well as the view that it affords! There has never been anyone else camping there at the same time on any of my trips - so you have your own personal island for a night!
Notice the can of ice-cold Moosehead beer just under the hammock - enough said!
