Quiet secluded cove site, easy landing/launch. Multi-tent space plus private tent area, good trees for hanging tarp. Great view of sunset and Lights. Drawbacks: Rocky; lack of good firewood and bear bars.

A decent canoe landing, & plenty of room for multiple tents with a decent view of the bay out in front of camp. The problem is that the tent pads don't drain very well after rains. And quickly morphs into a quagmire. The firegrate is also quite constricting if you have a larger (more than 4) group. The latrine is also not the most private.

The campsite is tucked away around a point in the bay, giving you some privacy. The site is nestled in aspen, giving it a very different feel than most other campsites. (I felt like I should be out grouse hunting.) There are two canoe landings. The tent pad area is a big, open area. You could fit about five tents there, but a few of the tents would have slightly uneven ground.
