It's hard to look a gift horse in the mouth (this site is free, and you don't need a permit). However, this is nothing to write home about. The site has a decent view of Gunflint lake, and provides a place to stay if you're in need. That's about it. The tree coverage is lacking, the site is not very level and rocky, the latrine is a straight line up the hill from the kitchen/grate. If your buddy forgot toilet paper, he can communicate it by hand gestures while seated on the throne. If you're need a place to stay, this will do. If you're seeking a nice site to enjoy the evening, check out other options first.
