This site has a lot going for it. It's next to a "Walleye Factory" - you can catch lunch and supper right off the site! It's huge and open and has a nice swimming area and flat tent sites in the forest away from the kitchen area. Update: Visited again in 2022. This is a "3-Star" site only because it's obviously overused. It's been less used since Covid and the outfitters stopped channeling every client through here so upped it from 2 to 3 stars. See updated photos for conditions of trees at site now.

Great campsite, would use again. Caught walleye from camp and nearby easily. Actually shared the site with another couple who arrived late. Not room for a lot of canoes (3 were crammed in at the landing) but several tent pads and nice rock point leading down to lake, with good fishing access to the falls.

Just paddled by, as it was occupied. Looked to be a really nice site, with several open areas for hammocks and tents.
