This area was burned in the Turtle Lake fire, and possibly again in the Pagami Creek fire. We had lunch on this site while fishing Pietro on a day trip from Bald Eagle. There are obviously no real trees, the area is thick with lower growing brush, but if you wanted to, you could camp here. There is a fire grate, and a latrine, and even a few logs to sit on around the fire. Access is a pretty cool angled ledge going up the cliff from a tricky landing, but what a view! I wish I could have seen this site before the fire, but I will say that the fishing for smallmouth was great!
