It appeared the landing would be sand in normal water levels. (I was there in high water, and the sand was covered.) There is a widowmaker near the landing. The fire grate is in a really weird spot on top of the rock. People have obviously used the more logical spot for it. Illegal, yes, but I can hardly blame them. There is one large, good tent pad. Another one is near the kitchen on dirt with a very slight slant. One other possible tent pad is very slanted.

Decent landing. Poor swimming. Exposed and impractical fire grate area.

O.K. landing. Decent sheltered tent pads. A hill up to the latrine. As said, VERY exposed fire grate. It does provide a good view but, there is no way to enjoy a fire or comfortably cook.

A nice little site. Plenty of sheltered tent pads, loads of trees for your hammock and clotheslines and easy spots to store your canoe. Fire grate is on a very very exposed, not particularly comfortable rock but the previous tenants had moved the fire pit down into a very nice dirt area adjacent to the original location which, although probably not legal, is a vast improvement. Minimal bugs when we were here over Memorial Day weekend. Latrine path is clear but requires a tiny climb at one spot. Probably not the site for you if you're wheelchair bound, otherwise I very much enjoyed staying here.
