On a long sand beach, which is a plus if you like sand beaches. Long set of stairs up to the kitchen. There was a big white pine in the site. One nice tent pad at the base of the white pine. The other tent pad is right by the fire pit. You might be able to squeeze one more somewhere - maybe. The main thing I remember, though, were the bugs. It was surrounded by trees, so no breeze, and it must be near a swampy area - the bugs were pretty bad. Other than that, a unique site. If you like sand beaches, you may rate it 4 stars.

Good landing, steep incline up to campsite but very open area with room for a larger group and a lot of tents. Lots of trees so limited view but makes it private.
