Stayed twice at this site. Our first visit was in 2015 and was our favorite site of the trip. The second visit was in 2016 and we didn't care for it as much. The site provides great views of the cliffs on the north side of the lake and spectacular sunsets. There's a large population of chipmunks and squirrels that aren't shy about trying to get into your food bags. Fairly easy landing on the northeast side of the site, but the ground is quite rocky. When we visited in 2016 the latrine was full.
