Large site, a bit overused but you can't beat the view and access to the falls. Plenty of room for hammocks and tarps.

Great campsite with views (and sounds) of LBF. Site has two large, tent sites away from the kitchen with additional lake views. We had a four-person tent, along with a 6-person tent and everything fit well with room to spare. There is also room for a couple of tents behind the kitchen, if needed in a pinch. Otherwise, you can hang a tarp/bug net for added shelter. The site also has a private trail that gives direct access to the falls!

A great campsite with easy fishing access to the lower falls area. The site makes a great base camp,for day tripping. In your free time explore around the site and discover the remains of an old structure with chimney and foundation remains an easy find.
