LOTS of rocky shoreline, I didn't measure but my guess is 300 feet. Caught fish off the west side bay. Underwater rocks were slimy and slippery. Would have preferred to rate 3.5 out of 5 but that wasn't an option. The site really has a lot to offer, enough space for a large group. Nature made uneven kitchen table. Great view of the lake and big island, short paddle to good fishing. Toilet is about 700 miles back in the woods, stay left when the path forks.

Wide open site on large bare rock with great views. Plenty of room to spread out and explore the shoreline. Tent pads are challenged; there's 1 really good pad, and two sub-par pads. Nonetheless we had two large tents and two families on this site over Labor Day weekend. Nice cooking area, but few trees over this portion of the site, so it would be hot cooking during the summer months. Easy food pack trees. Long hike to the latrine.

Nice spot, good for a group on the larger side. Good landing and kitchen areas. Good northern and bass fishing nearby
