"Settled" for this site, but made it basecamp for our group of 8. The best canoe access is actually the small point to the south of the camp, not the north. The north access is dangerous for entry/exit/loading. Beautiful views of stars, SE facing with a buffer of sumac to cushion the wind.

The boat landing is on the north and quite a ways to where the fire grate is located. So it isolates your boats where you can't see them. The campsite itself is elevated with a south view. Since it's on the way to the falls, lots of traffic goes by. Actually this site is probably better for 3 hammocks as they can hang out on the eastern point closer to the boats. But the fire grate is still a trek.
