Spent 2 nights at this site. Decent landing. Kitchen area set by the water with a great view of the lake. Large flat rock above site for star gazing, even saw the northern lights! Caught six 20-25" pike off the rock in front of the site, in as many casts. Caught one lake trout out in deeper water. Would visit again if we ever make it back to Little Sag!

This campsite is located on the southern tip of a burn area that managed to not be consumed by the forest fire. There are tall evergreen trees surrounding the tent pads and the kitchen area. As you walk back to the latrine, you enter the burn area. The kitchen area overlooks the lake from an elevated rock platform and you have a commanding view of the south side of the lake and islands. Quite impressive view. If the wind is from the north, the site is protected. If it's coming from other directions, you will have little protection in the kitchen area, though the pads will be sheltered. There are rocks on the west end of the campsite that you can cautiously jump into the lake off of (feet first, and wear shoes!) We caught a ~25" pike from shore in the little bit of fishing we did. Pros: Scenic, great kitchen, good tent pads, good canoe landing, bear bag trees available Cons: Wind exposure in the kitchen, Lack of good trees around kitchen to put up a tarp if needed.
