Lake-level, medium-sized site with open kitchen area. Only two real tent sites. Small landing area. Right next to a crystal clear stream and a short walk from some excellent waterfalls. Not as close to the portage as shown on maps.

Nice little stair step landing. Open fire grate area with view of the lake. Several premium tent pads. Short trail to the flume rapids & bath tub swimming area where the river washes into the lake. Also, a longer hike leads to an enchanting waterfall behind camp. Some nice large cedar trees near camp. With it's proximity to portage trail and waterfall, privacy may be an issue.

Nice, but I bet very popular in mid season as there is a great soaking pool in the stream adjacent to the camp site. The river is outstanding and be sure to trek the trail to a spectacular waterfall. Good fishing and a very pretty lake. This site does not offer either a sunrise or sunset vista. The western site looks right down the lake however is located near a swampy area.
