The site is located on the narrows between an island and the mainland. Despite what the map looks like, you cannot get through in low water (or maybe even high water) - you must drag/portage over or go around the island. There are sand beaches on both sides. It is mostly jack pine. The fire grate has been built up and is now a large rock pile. Awesome view on both sides of the site. There is little shade by the fire grate but plenty elsewhere in the site.
