Great spot with elevated rock camp fire area. Great view of the lake and excellent swimming area. Chipmunk locals are very friendly!

Rained our entire stayed but this was a great site nonetheless. The view alone on the elevated site made it worth the stopover. Flat rock surface at landing was very slippery so careful. Grate placed at top with great views of everything. Chipmunk alert!

Great site. A very good landing to get your canoes unloaded. Kitchen area works well and grassy spots to pitch a tent.

Nice large site with several canoe landings, a great swimming area, and a nice elevated kitchen area with a view.

Good site. Sunny, exposed rock outcrop with good landing and commanding view of Vera lake. Tent site is flat and grassy. Good swimming opportunities off the rock ledge this camp is situated on. Beautiful sumac lit up in the Fall all around the site.
