Incredible site! Pebble beach landing on the north and west sides, great for swimming. Plenty of tree-covered and open-air tent pads. Several large trees make for great hammock hanging. Ideal for any size group with tents and/or hammocks. Protected from wind, which could be a good or bad thing depending on weather. The obvious bear-hang tree (a large birch) has bear claw marks all up it. However we saw no other sign of bears during our stay. While there aren't great views directly from the campsite, you need only walk a few steps down to the beach for incredible vistas and sunsets over SAK. Good smallmouth fishing around the peninsula. Take a day trip to Sema and troll for lake trout. PLEASE TAKE YOUR FIREWOOD FROM DOWNED TREES ALONG THE SHORELINE! Several green trees had been sawed down at this site, which was a real bummer.

Not very open to breeze and views of the lake, so 4 stars, not 5.

BEAR came to our campsite at 10am, medium size, friendly, I told him to leave and he turned around and went back into the forest. There was bear poop by the shore with a lot of fish scales in it. We found over 12 walleye carcasses in the water right off the site. And someone dumped a bunch of carrots in the woods. Not cool! Please be careful and never throw food around the campsite like that. As it attracts bears. Other then that its a great site with a extraordinary beach and views.

BEAR. Great open site with beach. Sadly, our visit also featured one large bear who would not be driven off and gave virtually zero craps about our loud efforts to drive it off. We had 2 visits from this bear before we decided to find a different site.

Good beach landing and swimming area, flat tent pads and good location/views. Snow shoe hares come in to eat the grass and wolves come in to hunt the hares. Lots of camp bear activity in all these surrounding camp locations.
