Small, but accommodating landing. Good fire grate area and log seating. A couple of nice tent pads near the fire grate with potential for a couple others back away from main camping area. (These could also serve as a tarp area). At one time this site was once home to a Alger Smith logging camp, and there are several remaining artifacts in and around camp. Also, there is a neat little brook gurgling just back behind camp (with a small boulder bridge) that provides some soothing wilderness background audio. Decent site for swimming but, (rocky) sandals recommended when in the water.

Off the travel route through the lake, so its nicely secluded. Excellent level gravel landing. Good trees for hanging packs. ideal for 1 or 2 tents. Not an elevated site, so may be buggy in summer. Can hear the nearby stream gurgling at all times.

I've stayed on much worse sites, but there was just nothing particularly attractive about this site. It lacks the open rock that I prefer and was a bit weedy and buggy throughout the area. This site offers good seclusion, but the other sites on the lake are much nicer.
