I really liked this site. It's out in the open with not many trees but it has a nice rock to jump off of on the north side and some great rocks for star gazing on the south. Swimming was also nice all around. Caught a number of smallmouth as well.

kitchen and fire pit are upon on a large raised rock area at the front of site. if you have chairs, there is no real space around the fire to set them. Fishing around that area was very sparse. Stayed two nights. The mosquito's down near the tent area were thick. Otherwise there is a nice deep cove just down a path and the canoe landing was pretty good. We had a beautiful sunset.

Mediocre landing in a shallow bay. The fire grate is exposed out on the small rock peninsula. Not many useful large trees around in the kitchen area. A couple of lumpy tent pads just behind. Portage to Ashdick is literally a stones throw to the SE.

Not a bad site but the breeze and view of the lake from the kitchen area is blocked by the large rock point.

Very rocky, tough to get stakes in. Nice south view, good proximity to Ashdick, Rabbit, and Ottertrack. Shallow swimming area out front and a sweet hammock spot out back.

Ended up here after rest of lake sites were full. 2 decent pads, room for a couple more but will be lumpy sleeping. Great swimming and fishing hole just behind the site in a little cove. Portage to Ashdick is actually south of site, not north as listed on map. Large open area that makes for great stargazing.
