We had hoped to find the other higher rated campsites open and available on this lake, but alas. It was okay. The campsite is a little tight in terms of tent pads. There are a number of good trees to hang hammocks on. Whoever selected the site and installed the latrine for this campsite deserves a raise. The first time I "took the walk", I wandered along the trail through the shadows. Then as I looked up, the sun shone down as if King Arthur had just pulled Excalibur from the stone. The only thing missing was angels singing...and a magazine rack. Now you may want to be intentional about the time of day that you use the latrine because at high noon, the sun heats up the seat to near the melting point. Other than hot crossed buns, the site has a nice view and is quite breezy. Enjoy your "walk".

Nice site. View from fire grate area is good, but you have a moderate climb down to the water. You can easily walk to the campsite to the west in about 5 minutes. Handy for larger groups. Rocky shore - had to unload canoe parallel to shore. No real beach. Good trees for hanging food. Swimming access is fair. Campsite to the west is a much better site.

Better than average site on Clear Lake from what we could tell. Good tree coverage, lake views, fire and kitchen area, and not too many bugs when we were there for two nights.

Large open site with great views of Clear lake. East access onto gently sloping smooth granite. No sand but still a good area for swimming. Nice fire grate ringed by log benches. Lots of pines for tarps and hammocks. Very nice site.
