Campsite is set above the lake with a large built-up firepit. Nice gravel landing. The bay is shallow for quite a ways out. The site would be dusty when it is dry. It is open to the south, so no shade in the kitchen in the middle of the day. However, the tent pads are shaded. The two good tent pads are large. The other potential tent pads are pretty good, too.

Large open site with lots of room to spread out. Ok tarp spot and decent bear bag trees. Big fire pit, with a sitting log. Fire wood was scarce, but a trip into the cedar swamp to the northwest found plenty of down trees away from the shore line. Good landing and even the the water was colder and excellent swimming area. Landing is protected by a small peninsula.

This site offers great sunset views and breeze off the water. Lots of tarp/hammock options. The northern landing is very steep and rocky. There is a shallow and sheltered landing on the south side connected by an overgrown tail. One of our group still gashed their knee open here on a submerged rock–ending their trip on our second day.
