The landing is mostly softball to bowling ball sized rocks, and drops off enough that loading and unloading can and should be done parallel to shore. There are two main areas of this sprawled out camp. The lower area is shaded all day with mature trees and has two or three not bad but not great slightly sloped tent pads on dirt. The fire grate is on the upper area. A flat rock as part of the grate's windbreak is a great little table. It has good sitting logs and a very nice view of the lake and the sunset. The upper area is not level and almost entirely rock. There is some shade throughout the day from some mature trees. From the landing the lower area is a level walk off to the right. The fire grate is a steep, rocky and possibly muddy 15' climb to the left. For access to the upper area there is a better trail between the upper and lower areas which would be fine even when muddy. The latrine is close but not too close, with a good trail. The trail continues past the latrine to an overlook on top of the hill. There is a fantastic swimming area on the northwest side of the point. It has a narrow sandy zero-depth entry that gets to knee deep before ending at a sheer 8' drop off, making it easy to get in and out of the water. There is also a rock that is a couple feet above the water that you can dive off into the drop off. Firewood was easy to find. Fishing from shore and in the area looks very good, but we didn't catch anything after a few hours of trying. The mature trees allow for good options for tarps, clothes lines and bear hangs. From camp we could not see the site on the nearby island. Due to the steepness around the upper area it could be a hazard for rambunctious kids as there is a potential for serous falls.

Great site. The kitchen is elevated on a peninsula inside a bay. Two tent pads are sheltered behind the peninsula. We really liked this site.
