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.
