In the motorized zone, but late in the season, it doesn't matter. Close to its nearest neighbor. This is a very nice site with a beautiful landing, an OK kitchen and lots of open space and flat spots. This is a former work site, and there is some old machinery lying about. This is also one of the sites from which you can see the AT&T tower on the Fernberg Road. In spite of the drawbacks, a very nice spot with a great view of Pipestone Bay.
