3 1/2 stars. We were on Rog until a bear came through camp around 7pm, tore open a food bag, then wouldn't leave. So we packed up quickly, left Rog and headed to the first open site on Sea Gull, which was this one. There are several things I loved and some I did not like. The landing has a nice sandy/gravel bottom making it very easy to land and get out of the canoes. It's on the south side of the island so it is protected from wind and waves in most directions. There is a nice place right by the landing to store canoes. It is elevated so there is an 8' climb to get up to camp. If it was wet it would be a dangerous challenge hauling gear up the steep, muddy hill. I was there during a dry spell so it wasn't a problem. Camp is large, level and open with mature trees that escaped the fires. The ground is level, covered with mostly grass or dirt. The kitchen area has good seating and a nice view. There are some good sitting rocks overlooking the lake. There are several tent pad options. This site could easily accommodate a large group. The mature trees allow good options for tarps, bear hangs, hammocks, and provide shade all day. Firewood was easy to find. The walk to the latrine is average distance with an okay trail that might be tricky when wet or at night. The latrine is not shared with the other site. There is an overlook on top of the hill between the camps. It is easy to get to on the offshoot from the latrine trail. Bugs, of course, were insane after dark like everywhere in late June/early July. While wading at the landing we had 4 leeches stuck on us. I managed to collect 5 crayfish when I went to get water after dark. I put a pot behind them then scared them into it with a stick. We boiled them for breakfast. I did not try fishing in the area. I would give this 4 stars if not for the steep climb and the leeches.
