We stopped here for lunch. We would have loved this spot if we hadn't set up camp elsewhere. Tons of space and lots of shade and hammock options. Downside is the rocky landing and plenty of traffic on Pipestone. Someone stopped to ask if we were leaving because they'd stayed here before. Popular site.

Huge Open Pines. Great fire spot right by the lake. Caught fish from shore. Site sits up so there is a great view. Only negatives are a lot of boat traffic goes right by & shitty landing spots. However, can land boat in bay behind the site & it is a bit better

Site is HUGE! Lots of big trees for hammocks. Plenty of firewood. All pine. Clear landing. Great for a base camp for day tripping.
