Decent campsite. Very rocky, uneven and open. It clearly gets used often. With a west wind it is VERY windy and exposed. The landing is a little awkward and no decent place to store canoes. The views are beautiful and has a great rock jumping/swimming area on the northern side of the site with deep water.

Large western facing island site with excellent views of the lake. This site would be a 4 star site if the fire grate area was moved to the northern section of the site, where the view is much better. We decided to hang out there and treated fire grate area as a mudroom. Only one decent tent pad up the hill. Great swimming off the north side with a rock to jump off and even a resting bench/ramp. Overall a nice site, but a tad trampled down and dusty due to overuse. You could fit an army here, but there aren't many tent pads or hammock options.

Nice site with a real decent camp kitchen. Landings weren't great, and not much for tent pads in camp proper (may be some back in the woods a ways.) We stopped here for lunch, and then were on our way.

Did not stop but passed by for a looksee. Site is on the west point of the island which was very windblown the day we passed by, so we decided to go further down the lake. Open fire grate area with some trees for protection from the wind. Looked to have a nice mix of flat ground and rock areas and appears to be used frequently. Overall, it seems like a decent site, but a bit exposed to the prevailing wind.
