Decent site. View of the lake is ok. Doesn't have the great swimming rocks compared to adjacent sites.

Decent site with a great view if you go out on the rock. There's a small cave and some cool rock formations if you look back aways on the right side of the site. The tent pads are a little uneven, but not too bad.

Nice little site. hung two hammocks, and one tent. probably had room for a few more hammocks and small tents. not much of a view from the fire grade, but amazing views from the rock point on this site.

There was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground by the time we stopped here for the night, and it was still coming down. We found a nice place for the tent in the trees, sheltered from the wind some. This site has amazing views in every direction, including of the rock face across the way. By morning snow was caked onto every tree branch. Awe inspiring. I can imagine this is a fairly nuce site in summer also. We were very greatful to have it.

Walked over to this site but did not stay the night. Good boat landing and great views, probably a better site for hammocks than tents.

Stopped with the idea of staying, but not a very good place for a tent. Too many roots. Good hammock site.
