Beautiful view, but no shade and no trees for hanging hammocks. Great spot for lunch and swimming, but since it was 90 degrees, we moved east in search of shade.

Site has an excellent view on this rock outcrop point. did not notice a lot of tent pad options. Did not catch anything from the site, had better luck paddling around.

sadly most trees have been cut down or died due to overuse of this site. There is almost no shade or shelter from storms. All the soil is slowly eroding away. Please do not use this campsite
