This campsite has a lot of potential, but has clearly been misused in the (recent) past. Someone had cut down a birch tree in the middle of camp and stacked up all the green wood they could collect from it by the fire grate (thanks a lot). The rest of the trees had been used and abused with hammock straps and/or unattended kids, with bark missing from the bottom 5 feet of most of them. The landing is a little rough, but full of great skipping rocks. Had some bites fishing, but nothing to write home about. There appears to be a trail leading to the other two sites on this side of the lake.

Nice campsite. Had been trashed by someone previous. Lots of partially empty food containers, rotting fish and other garbage strewn in trees next to camp.

Climb up the hill to the site. Trees mostly block the view of the lake. The landing consists of sharp rocks, so be careful. There is a small grassy area that you can put a tent or two on.

Nice camping area, plenty of room. Boat landing is not too good. Not much room to store canoes. Must climb up hill to get to nice a very nice campsite.
