Didn't stay here, but did visit while camping at the next site to the East. First impressions, this is a very difficult site to find if coming from land! From the water it's a very prominent site. To access from the portage, go to the canoe landing across from the small waterfall set marked on the map. There is a brushy trail that heads East from the landing that works back to the campsite. The campsite is actually really nice and and up from the water. There is a cool rock face East of camp. The fire grate and cooking area is quite nice. The biff is quite private and back into the woods (something the other portage sites lack.) All in all a good site!
