A gem of a campsite tucked away in the back of Clearwater. Many tent sites, large campsite with many places to fish from shore, or hang out overlooking the lake. A nicely supported kitchen area. Must be on a large sheet of rock as our tent stakes only went in about an inch. But I would definitely use this campsite again.

This campsite was outstanding! Plenty of shoreline from which to fish, and catch a lot of smallmouth and small lake trout. Tent pads were good. We hung two hammocks parallel to one another in what may have been the biggest tent pad. I think only greater elevation would improve this site.

Large, spacious site. Pretty decent camp kitchen. Landing isn't overly challenging. It's a pretty site on a pretty lake. Nice place.

Probably my favorite campsite in the BW. Excellent swimming area, southern exposure with sunshine, and flat rocks down to the water make for easy water access. Access trail from the BRT is tough to find, tho.

A rocky though accommodating landing. A nice grove of cedar with some large pines interspersed throughout provide shade & shelter yet there are still some areas that allow a nice breeze through. Fire grate is elevated and provides a marginal view of the nearby area. Plenty of good tent pads. Trails lead back to access the B-R-T hiking trail. There is an excellent area for swimming and rock jumping just behind the main camp area. (also a great spot to watch sun rises.)
