When my group was here, this site looked like it hadn't been used in a long time.

It is a fairly small campsite. Not many tent pad options. The swimming area is great - there is a rock ledge with a drop off right at the water's edge. This is also the canoe landing, and the rock ledge makes loading and unloading easy. The predominant trees at the site are jack pines. The water in the lake is the clearest I have ever seen. I could see 25 feet straight down in the middle of the lake. There are no fish in the lake - you have to go to Hustler for that.
