The landing is a shallow rock shelf. Large white pine in the kitchen. There is one absolutely great tent pad - large, level, and smooth. The surrounding area is swampy and weedy.

Good C - site overall. Landing is a little rocky and murky. The fire grate is wide gage but maintained. view of the lake is minimal and slightly marshy however the water was down about 1-1.5 ft. North wind blowing into camp helps however south wind is blocked. Good walleye fishing North and South in 10-15 ft. of water. Latrine had a lid!.

One very good tent pad and a decent kitchen. Site was very clean, but not a whole lot of open space. Would use again

Stayed here after a long hard day. The tent pad is excellent and protected from the wind but has no view. This would be a great site with a good sunset which we did not get. The landing is shallow and rocky on a big shield. The water surrounding the site is a bit of a backwater and is shallow and muddy.
