This site is on the western point of the island and is only open to the east, so it was usually protected from the wind. There's a sand bar landing when the water is low. Good sites for 4 small tents, lots of good trees for hanging hammocks.

Nice island site with a sand beach that makes loading and unloading the canoe easy.

Nice wooded island site with options for tents and hammocks. Also a great little sand beach for swimming!

I have been to this campsite twice on two separate trips. Perhaps it is because this was the first site I ever stayed at, it is still one of my favorites. At least 2 good tent pads but I think there might have been 3. Small but sandy landing area that is easy to swim from. Steep drop off to around 40 feet on the south side of the island could be good for fishing.
