Nice site with decent fire pit area. Good landing and decent place to swim. Tent pads are a little small, but we were able to get in three small tents. Just east of the busy part of Malberg lake so plenty of traffic.

Looks like a great site from the water. The channel is narrow and fishing is good throughout this area but every group that travels by is within only a few yards of the campsite. This site is more than likely going to be occupied during the busy months.

The site itself wasn't that bad, the site is off in the woods a bit and was very buggy. We had some luck fishing from the shore.

Fire grate had only 1 log facing the side of the grate. We manhandled another log to face the grate, but did not stabilize the log with rocks. Views are limited as the best view is blocked by trees. Bear hang tree is identified by the yellow and white ropes dangling in the branches. The site was just OK.
