It's about the same as the prior review. Steep climb up both sides, but quite the view! Probably best for just one tent. Will definitely be returning on future trips.

The campsite is on the top of a cliff. It has a view of the entire lake. The walk from the landing to the campsite is very, very steep. There are two landings, one on either side of the cliff. Both are difficult but doable. Both landings have a shelf about a foot or two in width followed by a steep dropoff. The landings also double as the swimming area. The swimming area isn't the greatest, but it is doable. The kitchen grate faces away from the lake. Because it is so high, the campsite gets a nice breeze. There is only one or two decent tent pads.
