Default Island camping on LOTW?

I always wanted to tackle LOTW on a multiday trip since I've never been there before (except lake trout ice fishing). Thought it would be a good way to save money by parking the boat on an island and sleeping there instead of having to drive back and forth from a resort. Just wondering if it's allowed and whether it's even feasible or not.

Any Canadian can camp on crown land so it is allowed. Whether itís feasible is another story. All depends on how little you can pack while still having everything you need. And donít forget gas! Never tried it in the summer but I do winter camp. Iíve done it for a while now so I have it down pat as to what we need and pack.
I will pre-make meals so itís just a matter of warming up stuff. Winter is great cause you can have a fire on the ice for smokies. Summer, no open fires at all.

I would suggest you check out some of the sites around the south side of Allie and East Allie Islands. Decent beaches may need to do some clearing (chainsaw, weed whacker) to clean up the sites a bit depending on how big an area you need. There's 2 beaches on Oliver as well I've camped on the Northeast Beach a couple times. If you can find one without a houseboat on it already, theyre likely your best bets. Pretty centrally located not far from town. I would avoid the big beaches on the south end of Shammis as these are popular Party Beaches. There are other options in this area if you want to search around too. Please remember to clean up after yourselves. Always try to leave a site cleaner than when you arrived.

There is a nice little island at the elbow as well, near Oliver Island that I have camped on before.

Thanks. I tried LOTW for a day trip and it was very nice lake and it was pretty peaceful. Unfortunately I found out that a day of muskie fishing drains my trolling motor batteries too much for 2 days of fishing. I guess I could bring a generator but that might be quite disturbing for most.

I will consider it one day.

Years ago I bought a Honda 350 watt generator for winter camping. Our camper has a propane camper furnace and I need to have battery charged up. Very quiet and light.
