Kitchen and tent pads are on top of a hill in a grove of pines and cedars. Difficult landing like most of Alton campsites. There is an alternative landing to the north. Stairs leading up to camp. This would be the best option for a large group on the south side of Alton.

Easy landing, plenty of tent pads, awesome hammock trees near the water, nice large rocks near the water. The only downside for this campsite is that we couldn't find a good tree to hang our food pack from.
