Well, the Canvas Dam site up Caucomgomoc Stream is a very nice site indeed! Although the southern approach up to the site from where the sign is located would be daunting indeed (steep, 7' high eroded bank with no steps), there is a nice sandy beach landing a little further upstream and some convenient tree-root and stone steps up to the site there. There is also another site just a bit further north of this site, with some stone steps. The site isn't as nice though.

Beautiful location, lot of loons, moose, deer, great horned owls, eagles, coyotes...and a jumping mouse that decided to make a nest in our paper towels, lol! Also a ballsy red squirrel that had to be persuaded to move along with a rubber band.

This campsite is off the beaten path, and very quiet. I prefer Pine Stream for its swimming off the rock, but Canvas Dam is highly recommended.
