Nice! Lots of trees down due to the winter storm but we did our best to clean things up. Water was RIGHT up to the firepit due to Basswood being up 5-8 feet and it was glorious. Agree camp table was convenient. The beavers are BACK and were making noise all night. Lots of Eagles and Loons too. Once water recedes looks like nice fishing spots from shore. Latrine is back up and away from camp. Nice trail to to the beaver pond too for serene nature views away from the lake. Bugs were not an issue (was 29 degrees the night we were there in late May) but we think in the high summer mosquitos could be an issue...

Pines with an open feel and a good view. There are two landings. In front of the site is a rock ledge that works well for unloading in calm weather. The ledge is also a great place to sit - just the right height as a seat. The rock ledge is a no-go, though, in wind. In that case, you need to use the muddy creek to the west - and it is muddy. There is a small, sandy beach down the shore. I did not go see if it was good for swimming, though. There is a private beaver pond out back. I believe the beavers moved out a long time ago, but the pond remains. Some people made an effort to upgrade the campsite - built-up stone table and a table lashed to a tree. They should probably be taken down, but they made cooking convenient.
