Junction Bay Journey

Junction Bay Waterfalls

Junction Bay Waterfalls

There’s a beautiful set of Waterfalls way down at the end of Junction Bay on Namakan Lake. They’re flowing very nicely right now with all the rain that we received back on July 3rd.

The Johnson River flows into Namakan Lake at Junction Bay. Johnson River flows out of Little Johnson Lake and Johnson Lake. These two lakes are in the backcountry and can be reached by portage from Forest Road 203 (there’s actually 3 lakes when you include Spring Lake). You can use ATVs to portage a small boat into Johnson Lake – there’s no road. There are 7 Back country campsites on the 3 interconnected lakes. It’s wilderness-style camping without the wilderness permits and regulations.

On the way back from Junction Bay, we were being tailed by this enormous thunderstorm. The views out on the big lake can be spectacular!
