Pretty easy landing. Nice view of cliffs on the other side of the lake. Mostly jack pines. Was hard to find a hanging tree. Swampy area, and we were swarmed with bugs when we got there. Miraculously, though, they disappeared when we were setting up camp. Not sure what happened. Not much for swimming or fishing. This site is a good alternative if the other site on the lake is taken. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Meh. It does in a pinch when the other campsite is taken. The other Slim site did look better than this one. Not many great tent pads, but we made do.

Descent site with a bad fire pit area. Marsh area net to site. We had to paddle out to get some cleaner water that wouldn't clog the filter. Decent small mouth and bluegill fishing from shore. In strong winds, watch the tall tree towards the back of the site, it's dead, rotting and filled with woodpecker holes.

All the sites in Upper Loon and Little Loon were full so we took this one after putting in at LIS. Not much shade or tree cover. Across the lake from the unmarked portage to Fat lake. Avoids that nasty Steep lake portage
