Really nice site on a peninsula in an eastern bay of Hanson. Spent 4 nights base camping here in late June. Overall, this is a really solid campsite. Pros: decent smallmouth fishing from camp, very little canoe traffic around camp, good swimming, very spacious, solid fire grate area, close proximity to PMA/day trips Cons: extremely buggy at night, kitchen area isn't completely flat and doesn't have much space for seating, landings are rocky and can be quite slippery

Very low campsite with a long narrow peninsula out into the lake. Most of the camp is in shaded cedars with one tent site out near the peninsula. Low and buggy when we visited following a rain for a snack.

We didn't much care what the site looked like by the time we pulled in. We stopped in and dropped of the stuff, and two of us took off for the PMA. Real pretty site and lots of options for hammock set up.
