The narrows site was occupied so we retreated back to this site just in time. Cherry lake sites fill up fast, so plan accordinly. Nice grassy flat site with an incredible view. Open area around the fire grate. Tough landing area. We had great fishing from the site for smallmouth bass. We fished from the sitting area and caught bass all evening long, although they were very small it was still fun. The latrine is within veiwing area of the fire grate, you may want to set up a tarp wall for privacy with larger groups.

Beautiful site with a beautiful view of the lake and its cliffs and islands. Fire area is a bit exposed with no options for a tarp, but down a small path there is a great spot to tie up a tarp and hang out, and cook with a fuel stove if you want. Spent 3 nights here and loved each one. Fishing was a bust unfortunately, only got 1 on a 6 day trip. Still, would totally stay here again.

The view of the island in front of the campsite is fantastic. It has a good kitchen and a nice grassy area for the tents. Great spot to spent the night.

Very nice site. Lots of open space. Good kitchen. Grassy tent sites. Landing is not the best, and keeps this from 5 star. Cool islands in front of site and access to Lunar and Lake of the Clouds thru cherry.

A decent site with a spectacular view of the islands on Cherry. A good second option if narrows site is taken. Very little cover near the firegrate for shade or tarp. Decent canoe landing. Lotsa grassy area for tent.
