Nice open kitchen area. Several good tent pads - we chose one near the water so we could hear the waves lapping, but there are at least 2 more good ones back away from shore that are more protected. Landing is forgiving, and a nice place to swim. We had a nice time at this site.

Nice ramp landing that leads up to an elevated site that provides awesome panoramic views of the lake. Several nice tent pads which could also double as a tarp area. There is a steep trail just behind camp that leads up to a high overlook. Also, if you follow the shoreline a short distance to the west (the water is quite shallow) there is a nice sandy area for swimming. A potential chink in the armor is that the fire grate area is exposed.
