Nice site. Big rock feature in the front of the site with a landing around the corner in the cove. Lots of ants, but not a nuisance. I think I found the main hill next to the pad closest to the channel. Heard a deer walking through the site in the morning while we were still in the tent. There was a low, 4 foot bench to sit on, but nothing else besides the rocks to sit on. A trail at the boat landing went into the wood, though I did not explore to see where it lead. Cut up and split some wood for the next camper.
