The FOA "Algonquin Park Canoe Routes" map shows a campsite at the power lines halfway down Schooner Rapids. "Jeff's Map" also shows the campsite but with the annotation "As of 2013 this campsite was reported to be unlocatable". Well, this is that campsite. It's not on the shore -- it used to be but that location has been overgrown by alders. Rather it's just a little inland, adjacent to and on the far side of the Hydro road. But whether it's an official campsite is a different matter. There is no campsite sign nor any sign of a thunder box (the overgrown location had an outhouse). And the fire pit is the pits.
