This site is probably best used as an overflow if your group is too large to fit on the lake's other site. We choose this one because of the large rock at the shoreline, which the kids really enjoyed playing on. It was also a nice place to eat meals. This is a fairly small site. The one level tent pad currently has a tree leaning over. We opted for a second location that had the downside of quite a slope. The third potential pad currently had firewood/brush piled up, but could be easily moved. Probably a good place to use a hammock tent. Nice firepit, fairly well protected from the wind. This is a site for small fires, because tent pads are close to the firepit. The small size of the firepit was perfect for this. There is also ample firewood nearby. Site seemed to have been recently maintained, thunderbox looked like brand new wood. Unfortunately we found a beer bottle smashed beside it, which we cleaned up and packed out. Found the cap with the remains so it was probably full when it broke. Tough to feel sorry for the person that carried it all the way up there just to smash it. Karma. Shoreline around the site is quite rocky. At the time of year we visited, there wasn't a great place to land, it might be better in spring. We wound up landing at portage with an easy bushwack to site. The route was through the other site, so you may not have this option in the unlikely event there is a second group at this lake. In summer this site is probably quite a bug trap, but this wasn't an issue in our September visit. The site is also quite dark, especially in the morning as the sun rises behind the site. We got some sun on the tip of the large rock at around 9:30. The site itself didn't have sun yet when we left at around 10:30. Again, this might be better earlier in the year when the sun comes at a different angle.
