I haven't been to Quetico for almost 20 years, I am planning a trip there this summer, and have few questions. I just picked up a couple of McKenzie maps, and they show campsites, stating they have fire grates and wilderness latrines, like the BWCA. Is this true? Can you only camp at sites so equipped?
quote Chicken: "Not to mention campsite like the one on Louisa Falls trail, I felt bad checking out the falls and walking through someones camp. I guess you have to expect/accept it if you choose a camp like this." I was told that the park management asks that folks not camp at that site. In 2010, my son and I walked through a fairly large group camped there. That site is really beaten down!

There are some fire pits in Quetico which have grills that someone left behind. In the Beaverhouse/Quetico area, I think they were left by First Nation folks. I have never seen a latrine in the Q, except at the old ranger station at King Point. Be careful using McKenzie or any map for campsite locations -- they (and portages) often are incorrectly marked, or have moved. --Goose
