Very nice site. It has several vantage points to look out at Bald Eagle. A short walk takes you to the main lake and a view to the east. Enjoyed the lee side for protection from the wind.

This was my favorite campsite of our trip. it was big, it had firewood, it was a pretty site, we were swimming of the east end of the peninsula, which included jumping off of the big rock into the water which was well over 20 feet deep. latrine was pretty good, and there were good tent pads. we never fished from camp, but probably would have caught fish if we did, as it was close to a deep hole.

Beautiful “Cedar Grove” site, with nice red pines scattered about! I spent 7 nights here, solo, late May 2016. The forecast said severe thunderstorms were coming, and they did, more than once that week. The wind protection of the trees was much appreciated. Yes, it would be a hot site in July/August, but early and late season it is ideal. Good little hikes north, south and across the peninsula to the larger body of Bald Eagle Lake. Okay fishing from camp with easy shore fishing access to the south, where I did catch a few small pike and smallmouth. A short hike east to the other side of the peninsula and you can also shore fish a few spots there. The channel to/from Gabbro has current and was a popular fishing spot. I caught a 46” northern in that channel . I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the steady canoe traffic to/from Gabbro and Bald Eagle. Not the most private spot.

The site is set back in a cedar grove but is still open. There is an OK landing on a sloping rock in front of the site. Three good tent pads near the kitchen. There are another two flat, level tent pads, but they are within spitting distance of the latrine, so they are not counted as "good" tent pads. High traffic area as anyone going in or out of Bald Eagle passes by.
