This site is right across the lake from portage into Lizz. There are no trees to hand a bear bag and the firewood situation is pretty bleak but it sets on a great point facing north and it has a great view of the lake to he west. We stayed here two nights.

Mostly open campsite on a rock. While most of the campsite is in the sun, the tent pads are shaded. However, since it is on a rock, you cannot stake the tents in very well. On a west-facing point, so the wind can keep the bugs away. Two different landings. One is on the west side and is a sloping rock. The shape of it made landing a little difficult, but I've had worse. The other is on the east side of the site and is a narrow, shallow entry. It looked promising, but I tried it once and went back to using the west-side entry. Swimming was fun. We jumped out the front of the campsite. If you jump far enough, it is deep enough that you won't touch. There is a rock just below the surface a little to the northwest that we swam to and had fun on. The only complaint I had about the site was that it was impossible to find a hanging tree for the food pack. I eventually was able to get it above the ground, but I was under no illusions that it would be safe from bears. We had 5 kids with us, and overall, it was a great site for them.
