I cannot find my notes, so I will do my best. Landing was OK. If you are wet footing, it is perfect. If you are trying to keep dry, it is not so easy. Kitchen is on a breezy point with a good view. Varied tent pads - among trees, rocks, pine needles, grass, etc. A lot of cedar and balsam trees.

Ok campsite. 1 good landing. Campsite faces N/NW and has a view of summer sunsets. Tent pads are small, kitchen area good size with an area to hang tarp. Long walk to latrine in low, brushy area which in early August was kind of buggy.

Sub par canoe landing. Open easterly orientated firegrate area with lotsa room to move. Several decent tent pads. Long walk to the latrine. Trails for exploration & allow viewing of sunset if desired. Well worn. (As with all sites on this lake.)

2 nice canoe landings, great view, nice fire pit/w log seat, 1 nice tree for hanging right in front of the site, tent pads in back area can be soggy if it has rained a lot. Separate large kitchen/tarp area for cooking. Latrine is up hill and nearly full. Plenty of room for a larger group.
