Great view. Lot's of traffic but most people coming from the north won't even notice the site. Nice rocks out in front. Excellent fire grate area. Very compact tent pads.

This wasn't our first choice on horseshoe because I thought it too close to the portage, but it is a good site, sheltered from the portage, but facing a fair bit of traffic on horseshoe. Good area to hang hammocks as a group and another good solo spot off the kitchen. Kitchen was nice, landing was okay, but was good for fishing. Didn't like seeing that a previous camper had stripped a live tree of branches to rig a bear tree.

The view from this site is magnificent. Both sunrises and moon are beautiful. Canoe landing is a bit tricky and swimming is hampered by rocks and grass. Tent pads are soft and relatively flat. The site doesn't get afternoon sun so it can be a bit cold particularly if the wind is coming from the South. Site is well used so finding firewood can be challenging. Cooking area is open with some shielding from the wind.

Awkward landing. Great kitchen with good wind-protection boulder. Swimming is shallow and rocky. Tent sites level and good distance. Several bear tree options.
