Campsite is hidden on top of a hill. It is hard to see from the water if it is occupied. Open space at the top of the hill has the kitchen and most of the good tent pads. There is one tent pad down by the landing. There is another excellent tent pad if you don't mind long hikes - take the trail going north out of the campsite and you will find a nice flat, open area. There is a great bear-hanging tree right in camp. The landing, like most on Alton, is difficult if you want to keep your feet dry (if you don't mind wet-footing, it is easy). The bay is shallow and has poor fishing. It makes for excellent swimming, though - my kids enjoyed playing in the sandy shallows all afternoon.

Excellent campsite. Came here with family and wives. Nice open area for campfire with log seats. Easy canoe entry. Poor shore fishing.
