A large, sprawling site. Like most sites on Alton, the landing is terrible. The tent pads are spread out and will accommodate large tents. There is not much elevation to the site - the kitchen and most of the tent pads are close to the water.

Very large campsite. Nice firepit area. Poor canoe access, very rocky - can be tough on a windy day. Lots of open places for tents.

Would maybe rate it a 3 1/2 if that were an option. We liked the site but there were just two of us. It has a sloping area for the fire grate and kitchen, and the landing is rocky - but just about everything on Alton has this type of landing. We set up a hammock and tent near the water, but there is a larger area elevated behind the fire pit area.
