Landing was rocky and a bit of a lift, but that may improve when water levels are higher; I assume they're quite low given the draught we're in. Once on, there is a nice open area around the landing, then the fire grate is set into the trees a bit. It was a fine site and a mix of open and sheltered areas. Frankly, I think it might be a bit overrated, but it was far from bad.

Great island site. Nice rock landing to watch the sunset. Good bear and tarp hang trees. Very remote with little canoe traffic.

This site is maybe a little better than the campsite by the portage to Frederick. It is a nice site for a remote lake like Wine. The landing was a little tricky. It is almost a nice rock shelf, but not quite. There is a sloping rock on the west side with a trail to the site that might serve as a better take-out point. The kitchen and tent pads are back in the trees. There are some big white pines around the kitchen. You can sit on the rocks by the lake to get some sun and get away from the bugs.

Nice site. We stopped in to check it out on a day trip and picked some blueberries on the north shore of the island. The sitting logs near the fire grate are especially nice. Two large trees where blocking the latrine trail.

This site is actually on the west side of the island. Easily the best site on the lake. Lots of huge wite pines provide ample shade and cover. Nice canoe landing. A bench by the firegrate that is flat and has a back rest. Several flat rocks surround the firegrate providing a convenient table. One of the very best sites I've ever stayed at.
