8.69: Oblique Photo of Central Wasagaming

The photo was taken looking northwest with Clear Lake 1 in the background with a jetty 2 projecting into it. The photo was taken in the summer, and several small pleasure boats 3 are moored in the protection of the jetty. In the west (top) is Ominik Marsh 4 leading down to Boat Cove 5 from which boats are launched for a trip on the lake. Nearer the viewer is Clear Lake Seasonal Campground 6 with a large parking lot 7 to the east. Tennis courts 8 are located between it and the jetty. The commercial area of Wasagaming (outlined) occupies most of the central part of the photo. Several motels and sets of tourist cabins 9 can be seen with several blue swimming pools 10. Also visible are some of the National Park’s services including the Museum/Interpretive Centre 11, the Administration Building 12, and the Community Centre 13.
