BEAUTIFUL SPOT JUST AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE LAST PORTAGE INTO KNIFE LAKE. UNBELIEVABLY BUGGY. 1ST AND ONLY TIME WE HAD TO BREAK OUT THE BUG HEAD NETS. BIG OPEN AREA CAPABLE OF ACCOMMODATING A LARGE GROUP. GOOD HAMMOCK OPPORTUNITIES. THE LANDING IS A LITTLE TOUGH, BUT DOABLE.

The campsite seemed small and open. There are only 2 level tent pads. The other 2 good tent pads are back in the woods along a trail. If you are needing to go during the night, it is a long hike from the woods tent pads to the latrine. The landing was OK for one canoe. Any more would be difficult. There was a trail up to an overlook where we were able to take some nice pictures.
