No good place to land the canoe that we could find. We landed out in front of the site, which is a challenging climb up - would be really tough when wet. A few nice tent pads. Elevated view from the kitchen, but the lake is not very scenic. Some good tent pads. Because of the landing and the lake it is on, rating it 2 stars. If it had a decent landing and was in a more desirable location, I would rate it 3.

Didn't go into site but the landing looks challenging...a big rock to get up before you're into the site.

Challenging landing. Elevated grassy/buggy site that provides good views, unfortunately the lake is more like a river here. Should be blueberries in season. There was a fire on the opposite shore which provides an excellent place to gather firewood.
