This site is large enough that our group of 7 with 6 tents was able to fit comfortably. The rocky landing makes getting in and out easy and there's a back "patio" landing that provides you landing and launching options depending on the direction of the wind. Good bear bag tree selection. If the wind is from the south or east, the fire grate is exposed. The latrine is a bit close to the tent pads. Overall a great site for a large group.

There are two options landing. The north side is a sloped rock and is the slightly better of the two. The campsite is set in the red pines. There are trails all over the peninsula. The tent pads are numerous and flat. There is no seating by the kitchen. What makes this site really spectacular is the trail down to the great beach in the cove.
