Great site on a cool island with lots of vantage points. A nice firepit, but a tight landing. Great rocks on the island to watch the sunset

Beautiful site but a long way to the latrine. Several slobs didn't bother to make the hike so watch where you step.

The tent pad number didn't matter to us too much as two of us were hammock camping this go around. We reached here from the boat launch on Seagull after a drive up from the cities. This site was surprisingly difficult to find in the dark, that's for sure. The crew was a pretty beat by the time we got here, so we didn't get to enjoy the site quite as much as we would have liked. Awesome foggy sunrise here though.

There are 2 easy landing points, on the south-east side of island, do not try and seek a landing along the rocky west side of island. Many good tent pads on this island that can at least accommodate a smallish tent. One large tent pad easily accommodated our two 3-man tents, could easily handle one quite large tent. Campfire hearth is elevated, with nice U-shape log seating around it. The fire is up on a pretty exposed rock outcropping, from which you could also fish the lake. Nice and windy up there to combat mosquitoes. We found decent fishing to the southwest of the island, around the peninsula and down near were some rapids/falls empty into Ogish Lake.

Good landing. Good level tent pad a little up from the fire area. Nice views from different sides of the island. We had a bear in camp during the night a few feet from the tent tearing up a decomposing log. We yelled at him and he went crashing away thru the brush.
