A former resort site close to Newton falls. Decent landing leads up to a large open area elevated above the water. Good, not great kitchen and seating. A couple of very nice tent sites. A little close to one other campsite. Have stayed here a couple of times in the fall. Could be buggy in warmer months.

Rocky access on 2 sides, a nicer gravel access to the left, but it gets deep fast. Squirrels were quite boisterous the whole time we were there, quite a few squirrel fights. Nice tent pad near the point and plenty of options for other tents and a few hammocks.

You're going to get your feet a little wet getting in and out of your craft. Rocky abrupt shore. Great wind cover and the fishing was good.
