Maybe a campsite that shouldn't be a campsite. Positive points are that you feel very secluded in this corner of Iron Lake, the campsite was not worn down, well protected from west wind. Negatives are view from the fire area, small pad even with 2 man tent, no good area for tarp, and the worst was that the site is in a shallow mucky bay, no swimming, no fishing, and i paddled out to the main lake to get water for any purpose. I suppose if you wanted a place to hide away and read a good book for a few days it would work. I was tired and just needed a place to crash, and it worked well enough for one night.
