As noted by other reviewers, this is a secluded spot at the end of Fire Lake. It has a nice flat rock and the swimming area also has submerged flat rocks which makes getting in and out of the water very easy. I marked this site down for not having much in the way of shade after about 12 noon. It was pretty windy while I was here so I can't comment on the motorboat noise the other reviewer heard.

Nice rocky landing with plenty of space to lay out gear without getting sandy or muddy. Very much secluded by the time you get to the northeast side of Fire Lake. Enjoyed the fishing and swimming in what felt like one's own private wilderness lake. Did not experience motor noise carrying from snowbank like initial review. Tent pads - especially #2 & #3 - were small if you have anything more than a 2/3 person tent.

Nice campsite with a private lake. Lot's of room on the rocks by the water to spread out and plenty of trees for shade and rigging tarps. Great spot for swimming if the weather is right. I didn't notice the noise pollution the other commenter heard.

Quiet, secluded site that "should" offer solitude. Small tranquil lake. Good tent site, decent landing. One big drawback. By the time you reach fire lake you begin to hear motorboat and vehicle noise from the fernberg/snow bank corridor. It is subtle but if you are sensitive to this non wilderness intrusion you are on the edge of civilization here to be sure. Maybe if there was ambient noise from wind and so on it would be masked but when calm it is there. My rating reflects this personal bias.
