Stopped by this site. Hidden with no view. Great sandy landing. Hike up to the site in mature trees & a real cool fire pit. Walk down to other side of the point & there is a big rock to fish from, even a flat spot for a tent if you don't mind a short walk to the main area. Cool spot

We stopped in here for lunch. Nice site set back from the water a bit. Awesome boulder for the camp kitchen. Good flat tent pads. A shiny new biff even! Cool site. Only down side is no breeze with how set back into the trees it is.

Great beach for swimming and loading and unloading. Large Boulder serves as a table and the back for the Fire pit. Plenty of space for Hammocks. Small trail to the point to the north. There is an old trash pit in the trees on the northwest side of the camp, it has old stove/vehicle parts, and unfortunately more recent chair parts in it. We even had a pair of snowshoe hares pass through the campsite.
