My first impression was not good, but the longer I stayed there, the more I liked the campsite. Do not try to land in front of the campsite - go around the peninsula to the back. It is a sandy landing in a weedy, shallow bay. It has a great view from the kitchen. The peninsula is rocky and rooty. Jack pines dominate the area. Two very large tent pads are below the kitchen near the landing. There is one more potential site on the peninsula, but it is very rocky, and you would not be able to put stakes in. Probably won't see many people.
