Can't speak highly enough of this site. We stayed for almost an entire week (seems one of our group suffered from motion sickness... how you don't know that...) Anyway, multiple good tent sites, one especially on the back (east) side of the site which overlooks the main part of the lake. A couple of the tent sites can be an issue in heavy rain, depending on your tent of course. Great exploring areas, kids loved it, but if they're younger they need supervision, lots of rocks/holes/cracks to check out. Overall a 4.5, with the only issue being the landing areas. Best is well to the SW of the camp, which makes for a 10 rod portage on it's own. Best camp I saw on the lake though, great group site.

Scenic site set in red pines. The landing, though muddy and weedy, is easy. The landing is a little ways from the main part of the site. The kitchen sits on top of a 10 foot cliff and affords a great view to the south and west. It is protected from the north and east. It didn't appear to be a great swimming area (at least from the landing) because of the mud and weeds.
