This site has a beautiful sandy beach. Not the greatest for sites back in the pines camping but you can set 20 tents up on the beach. PS> We had 2 sets of fresh wolf Tracks on the beach. We think the visit was at 3am. So I can confirm the wolf activity here.

A decent site that grew on us. Landing is on a sandy shore in the bay. A short walk up the hill leads to the main site area. A good fire ring and a few grassy tent pads nearby. A long rock shelf provides some nice space to spread out and watch the sunset. We put up 4 tents in area suited for 3 without any trouble. There is more space for tents down by the beach, though it could get soggy if lots of rain.

Site is OK, its open, has a good view and small beach area on the south side of camp. Had a wolf walk up on us after dark, had to scare it away. I guess the fish fry was smelling pretty good!
