Small site tucked into the woods. Nice site if you want to get out of the wind but a bad site if you are looking for water views from the fire area. Rocky tough landing no matter which side you use. You can hear the campsite to the west. Makwa is a beautiful lake with great lake trout fishing.

Date of visit is an approximation. Was early fall of 2012. Used site with USGS research team. Accommodated 3 tents, but it was pretty tight. Not great boat landing area with shore being primarily boulders. During low-average water, there is a beautiful sand beach you can walk or wade to north of camp. Stunning sunsets over Makwa. Really pretty but somewhat tight campsite. Would recommend to any group with 2 tents, maybe 3, but this visit was 5 years ago.
