About: Lumber operations and river log drives of the 1800s abandoned many logs in the river. In the early 1900s salvage operations retrieved the abandoned logs which were then milled at the site. The original name of the site, Sawdust Pile, comes from the sawdust piles that used to be found near the sawmills.

The sawdust flats were large open fields on the north side of the river were sawdust was piled until it was removed. There are multiple foot paths down to the river from the camping area. The North Country National Scenic Trail passes below and west of the site.
