We planned on just stopping for lunch but ended up staying the whole week. Great fishing, great view, easy wet landing (about a foot of shallow water for standing), and overall good site. Only downfall is to have a tarp near the grate, it takes lots of paracord. I used about 300 foot due to where the trees are. Didn't know how good a site we had until a lot of canoers passed by us disgruntled their spot was taken. So the word is out! Some beautiful low foliage that the paths went through back to the other tent pads. Beyond that was the latrine along an easy path. Nice rock to stand on to gather water for dishes, shower, laundry, etc. Crayfish galore for the fishing hooks. Hung the hammock off the point, and was room for one more if you used one of the same trees. Weathered a couple of thunderstorms and didn't have to worry about trees falling in relation to our tent. Not much shade for morning sun - hence the creative tarp rigging. That is probably the only reason I'm not giving the site five stars.
