Nice island site. Good fire grate/kitchen area. Good landing and swimming spot. Polly is a popular lake so you will see plenty of canoes. Paddled to a small burnt over island in the eastern end of the lake and it was covered with blue berries.

Nice site - a bit of traffic due to entry point from south.

Thanks goodness we had trusty 20x40 tarp we were able to block the wind and still cover the fire grate in case of rain. We stayed here two nights on the way to Malberg and one night on our way out. Tents site are ok but if you have a large crew you may be cramped. We pitched our six man tent (our's was crew of 4) east of the fire grate. We didn’t catch any fish at the site but did in the cove west of the site. There is a small beach at the landing which made for easy landing and also a great place walk out into the water for a swim. This has become the hottest year that can remember at this time of the year since I've been coming to BWCA.

Large island site. Some fishing from shore. Good fire grate area. Well used site, some damage to island and campsite due to overuse.

We were there with 8 guys, two large tents and we were able to squeeze them in side by side. So 3 smaller tents should be no problem. This island site is nice and we even heard some wolves howling in the distance.
