We had a tailwind all the way down Knife and made 19 miles on our staff training trip. Reached this site only to find it occupied by the local Canadians (Geese) who had decided to defecate on the fire grate. Guess we are using a pan tonight! Ended up being a pretty great site all in all. It has seen some use and is pretty exposed, but suited us well.

Stopped here during day trip exploring the South Arm on a gorgeous day. Great view over the lake. Seems like a solid 3 maybe 4* site IMO . Little tiny walk up behind the site to an outlook and berries galore in right season (was an awesome snack for us). Did not camp here so can't speak to what a wind/storm out of the East would do -- might make it a bit rough given exposure.

Nice open site, great view, no tree coverage. The backside towards the Lou is all open due to fire, no trees just scrub brush. Saw a number of snakes.
