Tight shallow water pebble beach landing. There is a small 'bench' located there for contemplating the surrounding scenenry; which affords views of 5 islands. Exemplar firegrate area with a couple of planed flat logs functioning as both excellent seating and tables. Site is situated in a magnificent stand of majestic mature cedar trees. However, there is only one good tent pad but, the others are not horrible and the site would accomodate larger groups.

Large open space beneath tall mature trees. Ample tent pad and hammock hanging options and large sitting/kitchen area around fire pit. Shallow and limited shore fishing but canoe landing is nice sandy gravel. Great group site, but dense tree coverage offers no open lake/sky viewing areas. Lake trout were not biting during opener, moved south to Sawbill after one night.

Nice site in the cedars with a great beach landing for the canoe, but it lacks great tent pads. We looked at the site but decided to move on.
