Shallow water landing with a decent climb up to the site. Convenient canoe storage may be an issue - especially for larger groups. Stellar elevated site with incredible views of the lake. Several excellent tent pads dispersed about the site back away from fire grate area. Fire grate area is somewhat exposed but, you'll be hard pressed to do better on this lake.

The paddleplanner map is wrong - this site is NOT BURNED. Somehow the point where the site is located escaped the fire. Beautiful, spacious site with great views of the whole lake from the excellent fire grate area. Tent pads are flat, numerous and well separated for privacy. Reasonable landing, though somewhat lacking storage space for multiple boats.
