Very big and nice site. Overall it would more likely be like 4.5 stars, but of course that's not an option. Below is the rating of each individual aspect of the site: Landing - 3 stars. There is a rock to land by and it's fairly easy to access, but it's still a challenge for the back person to get out. Furthermore, there's a small ledge right by shore, so getting the canoe out of the water becomes difficult. Tent Pads - 5 stars. a few very flat tent pads to choose from and lots of space around the tent pads. Tent pads are also perfect distance from the fire grate. Perfect site for a big group. Fire Grate - 4.5 stars. Plenty of room and seating around the fire grate. It sits up on a hill over looking the lake for a nice view. There's no seating on the backside because it's right on the edge of the hill, so I deducted a half star for that. Site Size - 5 Stars. Plenty of space for a big group. There's a nice big area right off the fire grate to put up a group tarp/seating area (also doubles as an extra tent pad if needed).
