We were there Labor Day 2019 and thought the site itself was fine for two tents, but the landing wasn't the most convenient. zero people around, that was really nice being that far out from the outfitter.

Small site. It was buggy when we were there. There are two landing options - rocky or muddy. There is one regular sized good tent pad and one small one. The other tent pads are on a slant.

We stopped in for lunch on a day trip from Zenith to Wine Lakes. Small site, but nicely secluded. Canoe landing for 2 boats is nice. The single worst part about it is the step up from the fire grate to the latrine is very, very steep. A small, sad pine tree at the base of the rock looks to have been partially uprooted multiple times after being used as support while stepping down the rock.

Very rocky and lotsa roots. No good place to setup a tent. Somewhat elevated and has a decent view of the lake. You should have plenty of seclusion.
