Amoeber was full, Cherry was full, This was the only site available. It is small and sits 6 feet up off the water. If you want to camp in this area (amoeber to cherry), find your site by noon - otherwise you will run out of options.

Both of the campsites on Cherry were full so we ended up on Topaz. This wasn't much of a site. Tent pads aren't very good, camp kitchen was closed in, and biff was basically in camp. However, an open site is the best site. We took a pretty good thunderstorm while we were here.

Site is well above the water, with an OK landing, but not much else going for it. Main saving grace is it's the only site on the lake, so other than the thru traffic, you have the lake to yourself.

Meh. High up on the shore and pretty exposed. Latrine is VERY close to camp.

While the lake itself is lovely, this campsite is anything but. With nice campsites on both Cherry & Amoeber this site should only be used in the highly unlikely event that all those sites are taken.

Terrible site. the only redeeming quality I saw is that you would have the lake to yourself.
