We were lucky to grab this site on SAK. Proximity to Eddy Falls gives it a big bonus. It is kind of cramped for tents and the latrine is very visible from camp. The landing is nice for 2 canoes and the fire pit is top notch. The sunset views are great. This is a 3 and worth a night or two for sure.

Nice pebble rock landing. Fire grate sits up from the lake in a lush grove of mature cedar trees. Close to Eddy falls and good fishing spots. Lots of dead and downed cedars (firewood) back in woods by latrine.

OK canoe garage. shallow, but narrow. great view of lake from pit. faces north east. tiered site. surprisingly welcoming. trees for hammocks. definitely preferred over site to the seat of Eddy falls.

Underrated site. My only complaint is that we had to get creative with a double-rope bear bag system because of the lack of good bear trees. Has an amazing kitchen, the landing is cool and there's a great spot to hide the boats. Campsite has awesome fishing spots from shore, we were NAILING the walleye as they came up within 20 feet of shore just with slip bobbers. Best site of our trip.

Nice site, lots of use. Fire pit area has some great seating. Biggest drawback to this site is the latrine overlooks the fire pit and the latrine is visible from the fire pit as well, not the best choice for coed groups. Site did have abundance of thimble berries (like raspberries but not as tasty).
