Ended up staying here because all the campsites closer to Lower Basswood were taken, but I was glad it worked out that way. Had a nice rocky landing and a great view, with nice rocks for drying and hanging out. The grumper trail was pretty muddy and somewhat close to camp but this was a nice site, an easy paddle to the great pictographs just to the north-a must see.

Good news: lots of open space, and good tent sites. OK Landing. Bad news: kitchen just OK and a bit pinched. A little buggy (would be really bad in summer). Lots of canoe traffic. Bonus: good fishing nearby.
