A nice site but little used and needs some attention. Great landing. Entire site slopes gently down to the lake on a mostly rocky shelf providing a great view. Fire grate is okay but the sitting logs are mostly rotted away. There are a couple of extraordinary tent pads...flat and with a mostly grassy/mossy base--one was covered with moose droppings when we were there:) Seems like the bay should be good for fishing and is accessible from shore, but we had no luck. Latrine trail is overgrown and weeds surrounded the john. But we had the lake to ourselves and were treated to a loon dance.

NIce place, except that people are cutting down live trees and leaving used TP in camp (too lazy to use the latrine?!)

A very nice site. Great landing. Entire site slopes gently down to the lake on a mostly rocky shelf providing a great view. Firegrate area is open and close to the lake. There are a couple of extraordinary tent pads...flat and with a mostly grassy/mossy base. Seclusion!
