We ended up here after being forced to get off the lake because of wind, but ended up spending two nights because it was a good enough site. Check out google satellite images and you'll see it looks like a 30'x80' rectangle was mowed into the bushes to create this site. There is nothing remarkable or memorable about this site, but its functionality makes up for what it lacks in character and charm. The landing is fantastic with a sandy/gravely bottom that gradually deepens. It also makes a good beach. It's on a shallow bay so this is a good swimming area for kids as they have to go out a ways to get into deeper water. The site is roomy and would be good for a large group. It is sloped a little but level tent pads are easy to find as it is almost all grassy. There are no mature trees, but there are some medium sized cedars by the landing that survived the fire, so there is some shade available all day, and they also make a good location for a clothesline. The wall of small trees lining the site created good shade on the east in the morning and west in the evening but none mid-day. All wind except from the south is blocked. There were no furniture logs, but we did drag dead, downed logs from the edge of camp and made some that can accommodate 4 people. One log had tangled roots that made great cup holders. Firewood was available nearby. The latrine was average distance away with a good path. I caught 3 keeper smallmouths from shore, including a 2 1/2 pounder. My friend caught a 3 1/2 pound walleye by the island to the west. We heard occasional motors, and saw boats in the motor area, including one boat that headed north past the camp well into the no-motor zone.
