Nice campsite. Great views of Sawbill and lots of room to roam around. Good tree cover for tarps. Fish were caught from campsite (Bass). But, rocks abound so fishing wasn't easy. Cedar stand, so wood was around. Nice entry in the back for wet foot canoe landing. The lake narrows at this point and Sawbill is popular. So, many friendly waves took place. The campsite is sunk in so paddlers couldn't really see in, plenty of privacy. This would be a 5 star in my opinion but we hit it on a rainy weekend. We had a lot of water. Parts of the campsite became pretty muddy. Easy paddle to and from, I've stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times. It could be a good kids campsite. The Doleman on the Kelso is doable day adventure from here.
