"Bear's Honey Hole." We were kind of crammed when setting up 3 tents here although we probably could have made it work a little better than we did. The landing at this site is a bit tricky, but not terrible. My biggest complaint of this site was that the sun in the morning reflected off the water so bright that it made it difficult to sit around the campfire early in the day. Fishing around the camp was no good, but we did catch plenty of smallies and pike working our way around the big island to the north. The wind was pretty heavy at times on this lake though and we had trouble several times steering our canoes around to get back to the campsite.

This would be 4 stars easy if not for being able to hear motors on Sucker when it's still. Really 3 1/2 now. Good landing and swimming, lots of tent pads, and two way out on point while camp is really in a cove.
