    Can you camp on Mayo Lake?
    Used to go to a cottage on a small island on Mayo Lake when I was little. Late 70’s. The boy scouts used to camp just across from the cottage at the top of some high rocks. Used to have to take the boat over to the cottage. It had a front dock and covered boat launch with a small beach to the right and at the back was the boat house and another dock and boat launch. Loved it there.
    Would like to find a place to camp on Mayo Lake if possible.

      The lake is 83% crown land meaning you can camp on it. There are some sites set up on Mayo and Gin Lake on said crown land. Use the crown land atlas if you want to see which parts of the lake is crown.
