Loved this site, sheltered from big Gabbro lake but had interesting terrain and fishing spots nearby. Viewing west, we had a good sunset and rocky area for swimming. Only downside? The humming of millions of hungry mosquitoes after the sun set. Buggy, but still worth it if this one is open.

Great site! Nice tent pads, open areas, low bugs and good fishing. High traffic but still worth it.

Massively overused site. Lots of garbage from others, nails in trees, etc. Absolutely disgusting latrine. Could hear loud campers in the other two nearby sites. Very rocky, can't really swim. Hard to find a bear tree.

The landing is great - the reeds and sloping rock make a sort of garage for a canoe. There is a nice view from the kitchen. The large rocks in front of the site make a good place to sit on and enjoy the view. High traffic area, so little seclusion. Lots of good options for pitching tents.
