Bit of a climb to the camp from shore and the pullout was just ok. Good kitchen with only one really good tent site but multiple options if you have more. Plenty of trees for tarps/hammocks. Best feature of this site is the seclusion, very private on a busy lake. That alone makes up for any of the other possible problems.

Busy area and tough spot to get. South end of the lake around a little point. Good spot for swimming. Private other than hopefuls. Nice fire area, good trees for hammocks and tarps.

Great campsite secluded fromt eh rest of the lake. Nice canoe landing and fire grate area with a large stone ideal for preparing meals. Fishing was a little slow but were still able to land two nice walleye and a couple large Northern pike.

A secluded campsite on a busy lake. We didn't see anyone come down to this end of the lake over a 4th of July weekend. The swimming area is decent. There are a few places for tent pads. You don't have a scenic view of the lake from this campsite, but the seclusion made up for it for us.

Secluded site with a nice gravel landing/swimming area, big enough for at least 3 canoes, great views of the south end of the lake. East exposure great for watching the sunrise. The latrine is secluded from the camp. And if you're there at the right time of year the place is loaded with blueberries.
