Stayed here on my first trip ever in the BWCA. Was last site available on Gun. Overall, the site is good for 1 to 5 people. Fishing was very good off shore and canoe trolling in front of site. Tent pads were limited in nice flat space, but large enough to make due. Landing was average. Site faces mostly South, so if you want a nice view of the sun, you need to get up early to catch the sunrise. None the less, enjoyed my time here, the site was adequate enough to serve it's purpose, but would probably favor a couple other sites over this one. In a pinch, this would definitely be a good site to fall into.

Only picked this site as it was one of the two last sites left available. Has 3 tent pads but only one nice one. One is tucked into the trees on dirt and collects water. Decent fire grate, beautiful lake views make up for the tent pads.

Decent site, although not secluded. Fire area is right on the lake, with the tent pads directly behind.
