We were pleasantly surprised by this site. Great views to the west. Contrary to previous commenters we thought the there were 2 very good tent pads and another couple you could use. Kitchen area was nice and there is a big flat rock near the lake for setting up a chair reading or relaxing. Had teenagers with me and they loved the swimming area.

We stayed here 5 days with 8 guys. It was a great campsite despite other comments. We did have a bear the first night and at noon the second day. Only a punctured water jug for damage.

Awful site, would not recommend it to anyone. We showed up when it was rainy so the site was a slip'n'slide with the really crappy path to your site from the landing. Avoid if you can.

Open kitchen area. Site has a good landing for one canoe at a time. Great views to the west.

Huge, sprawling campsite. the tent pads aren't great, but this site could hold a large group without being on top of each other.
