This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful campsite. The fire grate is right on the water with many tent pads spread throughout the area to the back. Significantly more erosion than the last time - it has been well used. The highest tent pad in the back has a large pine that is dead that leans over the tent area. Beautiful view to the cliffs. This area fills up quickly. Find your camp by noon or you may run out of options.

We loved this site. I had specifically chosen this site months before we embarked and we were not disappointed. Plenty of decent tent pads, plenty of places to hang a bear barrel, decent shore fishing spots and a huge rock face for sun bathing, hanging out, etc. Breeze kinda shoots through the narrows which was nice as well. Cherry is a gorgeous lake with cool cliffs and plenty of spots to explore. 5/5

Great campsite all around. Low lying rocky point with exposed fire grate on the waters edge in the narrows. Sprawling campsite with several good pads up in the trees. We pitched on the point as we had good weather. There is almost a second campsite down in a cedar grove with a landing area. Beautiful grassy spot but could get flooded out - also mosquitos were thick back there but could a great second camping area for a large group. The main area was bit treaded on and beaten down to dirt. Beautiful spot with views of the cliffs on Cherry.

Very nice site. The best tent pads are away from the firegrate closer to the cliffs. Fantastic views.

One of the best sites, undulating and open, kitchen down by water, pads up in trees, sloping but spread out, cliff view worth the climb out to Hanson

Beautiful site at the narrows of a great lake. The site is sprawling, so make sure you check out all the options before you pitch your tent.
