This campsite is really great for a large group. The sand beach and landing is wonderful, the stairs up to the main site is unique, there are multiple tent pads that have different unique features, and TONS of great trees for hammocks. The rock overlook is a great place to watch the sunrise, look at the stars, or enjoy a drink/smoke with friends/family. There is a raspberry bush right in camp behind the kitchen, and there is more back behind the site if you're willing to look for them. There is a decent amount of traffic, but essentially none that comes directly in front of the campsite. The site provides easy access to Cattyman falls and Jordan narrows, which offers great fishing, cliff jumping and animal sightings. We didn't catch anything from our site, but was probably due to weather. The overlook is essentially a giant wall adjacent to the landing flats of the campsite. If this site is open, take it. You will not regret it.

Lovely sprawling multi-level site with many tent pads and areas to set up tarps. Lovely coffee rock to view lake that is separate from the rest of the campsite area.

Beautiful sandy beach landing that has a neat stone staircase that leads up to a spacious elevated site. Lots of room for every purpose here. Plenty of downed wood back behind camp and good shore fishing spots. Not really any good tarp options near the fire grate and there will likely be a good amount of traffic paddling by.

Beautiful site. Sandy beach, great views. We stayed here 2 nights after putting in at Snowbank. Spent a day with easy access to fish and photo Jordan Narrows. We tented up on the rock and had limited opportunities to stake out the tent but still found it was the best spot. Added some pics of our time here

Nice site on a stunning little lake. The sand beach landing is outstanding and offers a great place to swim and cool down. Site could use more shade and is blocked from most breezes has great elevated views and ample space. Quite a bit of visible traffic as groups cross from the Jordan portage into Ima.

What more can I say that hasn't already been said? Great site. Before we left we watched a couple foxes moving about 50 yards or so down the shoreline. Really great spot right by the lake where we were able to set up our mosquito tents and tarp.

The landing was sandy and would make a good swimming area. There were several tent pads, but I don't recall exactly how many. The kitchen has a good view of the lake. The campsite is nice and on the main travel route, so it is pretty popular.
