Nice large site with lots of room for tents, hammocks and tarps. The kitchen is set back into the woods a bit but not to far off the water. 2 Good landings. Great site for kids to run and have fun. Group of 8.

Wasn't our first choice for a site, but ended up being much better than we anticipated. Lots of trees, but doesn't feel claustrophobic. Tons of hammock options. Nice, pine needle flooring throughout. Two good tent pads. Kitchen area is set back from the water, so views are not the greatest, but the trees are not super thick, so you can catch small glimpses of the water from the kitchen. A bit of a rocky path to the latrine. Overall, we were satisfied with this site.

Great site. Lots of room for tents and hammocks. Lots of protection and the ground is like carpet with the soft pine needles under your feet. Would have been a 5 star but the landing didn't make the cut.
