This site is just a bit further North than it is on this map, nearly in line with the rapids. Decent campsite, but not great. The view out in front of camp is pretty nice, but the site lacks a good canoe landing area and flat tent pads. This is something I was never really concerned about, but after experiencing some sloped tent pads, rocky canoe landings, and rocky and uneven ground throughout camp, I definitely see why other people complain about these things in their reviews. Having the rapids near by was great and very fun to explore! There are also lots of great areas to explore that are very close to camp (i.e. up around the bend of the Kawishiwi River). Caught tons of rock bass and a few walleye right in front of camp in the tail end of the rapids. This site is apparently named "Platypus's Garden."
