Great site with nice sandy beach. Very good kitchen area near the water. Level tent pads in the trees. I have to give it a 4 because of no breeze and too many bugs.

The lake is off the beaten path. It has a private sandy beach. The tent pads are along the shore, away from the kitchen. They are covered in pine needles and level. The landing area, of course, is really nice due to the sand. In low water years, there is a rock shelf running the length of the campsite (in high water, this is underwater). The campsite is protected on the south, west, and east. The only disadvantage is the bugs. Since the campsite faces north, there is no breeze to drive the bugs away.
