Stopped here for lunch. The only non-burned out site on Gull Lake. Has lots of easy landing spots. I'm sure you'd see some great sunsets here. Could easily fit three large tents and 9 people the only problem is all the bigger tent spots are not shaded after 11 AM.

Great campsite. Liked the sloping view to the lake. The fire pit was in good shape. nice trails lead to other areas of the island.

Stopped here for lunch on a day trip fishing. Seemed like a very nice island site. Open with options for tents.

Nice site with a couple canoe landing options. There is a decent tent pad right in the site and another a short walk to the left. Fishing is good throughout the lake for pike and walleye. If you want smallmouth, the fishing is much better over on Pietro.
