We found this site to be a very fun site with alot of personality. The landing has a large flat rock so getting in and out is not too difficult but also not the easiest. The camp stove sits well above the water and has an easy path to walk up to the stove. The view of the lake is not the greatest from the stove area. There area a few places for tent pads that are flat but the downfall is they are really small pads. Plenty of trees for bear bags and hammocks.....actually this would be a great place for hammock camping!

Nice site, nice but rocky canoe landing, small tent pads. Raised kitchen site with latrine down the hill and hidden from view. Plenty of trees and rocky areas to explore. Great area to swim in front of the site that's about 4'-5' deep

Decent canoe landing. Plenty of trees for every purpose. Very nice firegrate area and neat rock garden just behind it. Small sloping rock ledge running down to the lake. Would easily qualify as the best site on the lake if it had a decent tent pad. I could only find 2 VERY small pads. Would be an outstanding site for those in hammocks.
