Overall, a really nice campsite that could realistically only fit 4ish people max. Neither of the tent pads are flat, but were good enough to sleep comfortably. Fire grate area is small, but beautiful with great views over the lake. This site also has a perfect rock to put chairs for morning coffee or star gazing, which is a huge plus. Landing can be a bit tricky/slippery, too. There is also a weird clearing & landing (old campsite?) on the southern side of this point with a fairly decent/large place to put a couple extra tents, if needed.

Stopped for lunch. Nice spot for a small group, both tent pads and kitchen area are better suited for 4 or fewer people. Could support a few hammocks instead of tents. Did not check out the latrine. Appears little used. Nice view from the fire grate area. Extra star for having the only spot on the lake, much less traffic than Horseshoe, Gaskin, Vista. Reputed to have good fishing.

Very nice site, but extremely small. Superb view of lake. Nice kitchen. Several good options for bear trees.

Nice landing and rock to the lake. It is a good site for two people.
