I agree with everything the previous post said. Minus the minks. There is truly only one really good tent pad. My daughter and I made due with another that had a slight uphill slope and a couple small ruts to deal with. One other man in our group was able to put up his small tent on a slight slope as well and able to situate it so that there was no rocks or ruts under the portion of the tent where he was laying. Overall, it's actually a pretty cool site with a nice lake view and kitchen area. I'd probable rate it a 3.7ish, but for the sake of 5 round numbers, I'll boost it to a 4 star. Great base camp for a 1 tent and/or 1 hammock group. Anything larger, I'd recommend just an overnight due to sleeping arrangements.

This is a great site for a group of one canoe. One super tent site, one super hammock site, and a great kitchen. canoe landing is a little rough, but manageable. Sighted both a family a minks and a beaver during our visit (see pictures)

Very tough landing while we were there. Slippery rocks. Might be better dry. Only one good tent pad with room for 2-3 more tents close together. Nice view from the fire pit. Neat rock table/seat.
