It even has a small campground, which is available on "first come" basis. That's at least according to all the signs. posted right in the middle of the portage route. It's a nice ground, with a couple of dens, outhouses, and fire pits. What's really important is that there is mowed grass, a nice clearing to stay at. And a weekend trip, I spent a night there with no problem... Until the morning.
At 7am, I got up to get breakfast going. At that point, the dam's supervisor (troll) drove onto the dam to check it. He saw my canoe parked by the signs, and threw his 4x4 into high gear to come over and give me a piece of his mind.
If you make a reservation to this number, then he won't threaten to call police on you. He also might not come harass you from his jeep, while you are portaging to the river with all of your quickly packed gear, to tell you that "If he called the cops, you'd be sitting in Jail for a few days because you'd have to go in front of a judge." That also goes for my 11 year old cousin, who was with me at the time. Even kids deserve jail! I get it troll, you are mad that someone followed the posted rules.
Also, don't throw garbage in the can by the posted signs. The Dam Troll will get mad if he finds trash inside his trash cans. Maybe he was mad that someone broke the imaginary, opposite of what the sign says rules already, but take notice, do not throw trash in his garbage can.
Take notice... while this site seems decent, you probably cannot camp there. Maybe thing should have been different if I hiked up to his door the night before... but then again, maybe not?
