Fantastic site. Huge open rock area, great for drying gear. Just to the east is a sandy-ish beach for swimming. West side is a length of rock raised above the water (which was low) great breeze was coming from the south. Nice drop-off along the west side, caught two pike and a walleye. Main campsite is among pine trees. Firegrate located at bottom of him just south of the open rock. Tent pads are up the hill to the south. Fit in 3 two-man tents and 2 one-man tents without crowding.

We base camped here for a couple nights. Excellent swimming. Beautiful sunsets. Nice flat rocks around the fire grate for cooking. Big Pines around the camp for hanging tarps/hammocks. You can see the pictograph wall through the binocs 3 miles to the North. We have much more of the BWCA to explore....but would love to make it back to this site again years from now. Treat it well!

Huge site among tall red pines. Tent pads are level and on several levels. Excellent landings on either side on point. Large flat rock area out front for sitting out near the water.
