Very nice site. I would give it 3.5 stars, as the landing isn't great, although there are a couple options, a tree has fallen, making access a bit tricky. The kitchen area is nice, but not very large, for a group of 4 it was fine. Tarp placement is a challenge. There were 4 nice tent sites, although one near the kitchen, and the kitchen area become small creeks in a heavy downpour. The other tent sites looked fine after the storm, and I had my hammock hung on the one with the water flowing through it. :) Nice view across the lake to the Bruin portage, firewood was plentiful, and fishing was good.
