We had a great stay at this site. We paddled up from the South and encountered site after site full. Tired from a full day (left Moose that morning) we made a gamble and went around the North side of Thunderhead Point to find this site, and were thrilled with it. Great kitchen area. Good bear tree. Two landings. One nice tent pad away from center camp, and we had two tents closer to the main area.

Elevated kitchen, very nice site. Will need to haul gear up from canoe landing. Use the canoe landing to the east of the front ledge area, very good canoe landing. Camped here on two separate trips. Tent sites are ok. Good swimming out front at the ledge area.

Very nice site with a great front porch. Kitchen and tent sites are well above the lake, so be ready to haul your gear up. Kitchen is OK, but heavily used and fireplace was a bit trashed when I was last there. Great views of the lake in both directions. A bit exposed to a west wind. While camping here one night in the fall of 2008, had the closest and most violent T-Storm I've experienced in the BW.

Good canoe storage, though landing isn't as super easy/smooth it's far better than some. Elevated site, open in the center and north facing. Absolutely would stay here again

Site is off the main travel route, but it's a little tight and buggy. Canoe landing is poor.

Site up off of the water, good view and swimming. Tent sites small but ample for our 2 person tents.

Awesome site! Elevated with a nice rock ledge for a good swimming area. We use hammocks and there are plenty of good trees, we hung eight hammocks with out a problem. Stayed here 2 nights.
