If you don't mind sleeping on a slope, several tents could be set up, but you will slide down the hill in your sleep. We found one good, level tent pad, but it was in a slight depression so when it stormed overnight we woke up in a 2-3 inch deep puddle all around the tent. Luckily our tent is amazing and we stayed dry inside.

One good tent pad with a few serviceable areas if your footprint is the right size. Fire grate is set in a great spot with a clear shot at the lake if you want to toss a few lines in the water while at camp. The highlight was plenty of trees to position our CCS tarp over the fire grate area perfectly and hang two hammocks right on the water. Lowlight was that it is a long paddle to the fishing and portage on the eastern part of the lake.

Nice site with a great fire area. The entire site is slightly sloped so there is really only 1 flat tent pad, but the others will do depending on how you situate the sleeping direction of the tents. Nice rock down by the water for cooking. Be warned though, the latrine is far from camp.

3-4 stars. A sloping campsite that had 2-3 decent tent sites, although 2 were rather small. There were several large rocks at the lakeshore that allowed for fishing from the campsite. We would consider using this site again.
