Known for its privacy, the Tucker camp is tucked away on a little corner of the island. Although it generally faces east and enjoys the warmth of the sunrise, the deck and dock are bathed in sun all day as it rises up and over the camp to warm from behind. Kids enjoy a small cove in back and copse to the side, at the end of which tiny “Duck Island” and its occasional duck/loon babies beckon. Across the lake, Blueberry and Huckleberry Islands provide a lovely view, especially when a rainbow is hung above them and the ospreys are taking flight.
The main cabin, built around 1972 on the site of the founders’ original property, has a large deck which is half covered so people and towels can be outside in any weather. Inside are three bedrooms (one with a king and the others with two twins each) plus a bathroom and small kitchen area. The family room looks out over the lake, with a fireplace to keep things cozy on a chilly night.
The main cabin had a baby in 2004, a bunkhouse set back in the woods to accommodate bigger families and/or folks who like a separate space. The bunk has a bedroom with three beds (a double-decker bunk and a twin) and a family room with a pullout couch, a little refrigerator and windows overlooking a covered porch in front. In back are a bathroom and a store room with a clothes dryer.
Paddlers will find a canoe, two kayaks and a rowing dinghy along the lakefront.
