Nice enough site, though as others have mentioned the tent pads are iffy...the first is right by the kitchen area, the second is rocky and uneven. The third is further back and really small. But nice mature trees, good view and spacious. We could hear the motors from the tow boats running up from Moose.

The good: nice view down Birch, wonderful sunrise, and we enjoyed seeing the canoes pass by. Nice kitchen area just above the water with wide open lake view. The site is actually set back a bit in a bay just north of the main canoeing path, so we got more privacy than we expected without the passing canoes getting close to us. The bad: For setting your tents, you have a choice between an uneven sloped area with lots of rocks and roots, or a grassy area that turns into a deep puddle when it rains. There's really no natural tent pad here!

Good site with one really good tent pad - others were not level or may serve difficult to set up. Nice view of Birch with a wonderful breeze to keep away mosquitoes. Bear bag was easy to hang.
