Absolutely beautiful island site. Pitch your tent on grass, pine needles, or 6' off the water on a slab and listen to the waves all night. Just like with an all beach site (sand everywhere), there are trade-offs to camping on an island though: access and more importantly in my book -- firewood. You'll have to travel to mainland and collect.

Good site, a bit of a rough landing - but, you can pretty much land on any side of the island if you need to get out of the wind. Walleye right off the kitchen!

This is a beautiful island site, with only one disadvantage - it's on an island. Can be very tough to launch, land, or even access the island with a strong south or west wind. Otherwise, five star landing, kitchen, open space and shade.
