Somewhat sandy shallow water landing. Decent climb up to fire grate that provides only a marginal view. Best tent pad is smack dab in the middle of trail to latrine. Good spots for hammocks. Canoe storage could be an issue.

Nice landing. Not a very good swimming area since it is shallow, muddy, and weedy. That also made the campsite BUGGY! Small, steep incline up to the site. Some obvious tent pads, and there is an open area in the pines that you could fit several more (at a slight incline). View from kitchen was mostly blocked by trees.

Good site, nice view of lake but secluded in the trees. Good tent pads and kitchen. The only negative is that Rib is a muddy shallow lake, so we went to Cross Bay to swim.

Good landing, steeper incline to site, nice view of lake. There was a moose and two calves on northeast side of lake as well as a beaver that kept swimming back and forth in front of the campsite. Bathroom was far off campsite and private.
