Great campsite. Short paddle from the Triangle Lake portage. There are 3 easily identifiable tent sites and plenty of hammock spots. The fire pit was built up nicely and there is a great location for a group tarp. Fishing from the site was slow, but we did manage to land 3 species. Much roomier and open that the campsite NW directly across the river.

There were a few good tent pads around the site, more if you wanted to set up in the sun by the firepit area. Nice island site with the toilet far enough away from everything to be private. Some nice hammock locations in the woods on the northwest part of the island.

Big grassy area just beyond fire grate area. Good area for swimming and landing canoe with sand and small rocks. There is a bit of close canoe traffic. Area around fire grate is fairly flat with an easy walk to the water. Nice for sunsets and sunrises. Most tent sites are under tall pines, but two are surrounded by bushes.

Good site. Lot's of goose poop brought it down a little. Nice rock for sunning. Nice tent sites back in the shade.

Nice landing with plenty of room around kitchen and several decent tent pads. Fire grate is exposed to a west wind and not a lot of shade or cover there. By passing traffic could be an issue. Fun site for kids.

Great campsite!! There are 3 tent spots right close to the fire pit area. If you walk just a bit north up the hill, there is a very nice -flat -tent spot between several trees. My son hiked a ways past the latrine and found a huge flat rock with about 4 inches of moss on it....the Executive tent spot for him and his sister!! It rained and wind blew....not much wind on the tent in the trees. About an hour paddle to the potrage 608 to the east. There is a water fall about half way through this to see. Cannot really swim in the waterfall. Too big. But fun. This site made an easy paddle from entry point 29 for the first camp.

Great site with a great view of the lake. The fire pit is near the same elevation of the lake, while some of the tent pads are elevated. It has a nice landing with shallow waters near the shore. It's an open, spacious site looking southwest.

Decent spot with good takeout. Nice trees, good tent pads and fire area. Nothing too remarkable, but very serviceable.
