The site is somewhat back in the woods. The landing was difficult. There is a steep, short climb from the landing. The site is small. The tent pad is very nice and flat. The latrine is very close to the kitchen - if there are no leaves, you can see it very clearly from the fire grate.

It's an okay site. Not a very good landing. The pictures that are posted show it in much worse condition than it was in 2015. We found it comfortable for 2 tents. One pad close to the kitchen area and the other just south of that.

This site served us well in October, but I can't imagine its awfulness in the height of summer. It's at the very end of the bay, is tightly hemmed in by trees, and has low ground to either side. Barely any wind made it in (hooray!), but neither did any sun (boo). The kitchen is tiny--fine for a small group--and most of the tent pads are rooty/rocky/unlevel. No worries for two people and one tent, but a bigger group probably wouldn't do well here.
