Absolutely awesome site... Impressed with the high usage how well kept and respected it was upon our arrival.. Hope this continues. Good canoe garages on both sides, great fire area overlooking the lake, good fishing, and plenty of tarp space to the south of the fire pit.

Awesome site. The view is unmatched as the site is elevated and give a great view of the lake. Excellent swimming, nice canoe docking area, a good deal of open space around the fire pit.

Probably the nicest campsite I've stayed at yet! Roomy for two larger tents. Gorgeous views of the lake and islands. Canoe garage off to the right (west) side of the site. Fishing was great from shore at dusk with a leech and slip bobber. Be sure to check out the larger island to the NE of camp. We heard wolves singing every night and they chased a small doe off into the lake the morning we left.

In my opinion, this is the best site on the lake. Good landings, good tent pads, and a nice mix of open spots and and shady spots.
