We love finding island campsites in the B-Dub so our group of 6 was excited about this one. The site is well sheltered with some larger trees that didn't seem to get taken out by the fire. The camping area is well spread out. 3 of the tent pads are nice although one of the nice ones still slopes a bit. One of the other pads seems a bit low lying and might be a bit wet in a strong rain. The 5th pad has a pretty good slope on it. There isn't a good swimming spot near this site and the island has dense vegitation that makes hiking around the island difficult.

Decent spot. Wind blows out mosquitoes during summer "swarming". Not many places to set up rain shelter. Easy to find and get camp set up.
