Great scenery. Huge, majestic red and white pines. Sandy landing and swimming area. There are only 2 good tent pads. There are various other places that you could maybe put a tent. There is a trail along the shore that goes on forever - don't know what it is for, but my 10-year-old son loved exploring it.

I would say that this is the best site on the lake from what we could see. Very roomy site, large kitchen area and paths through the woods that lead to the other side of the peninsula. Sandy shores all along. Nice, easy landing. A couple of good tent pads. Decent Northern fishing right from camp.

Awesome, I love sites like these. Very roomy with lots of trees. Soft floor of needles everywhere. Spacious fire area with 360 seating. Tent pads all over with potential tarp coverage. Entrance is perfect, right off a flat, shallow, sandy cove.
