Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: None.

Climb up to the actual campsite ...


Campsite maintenance: regular

Size of open area: It has a large open area which is an old abandonned road-bed.

Extent of tree cover: Tree cover over most of the campsite. However, an open area bisects the site where the old roadbed runs.

Degree of levelness: The tentsites, firepit and thunderbox are on a smooth level (the old roadbed), with a slight slope toward the lake.

Number of level tent sites: Ample tentsite areas for many tents.

North exposure: Solid forest blocks the north wind.

East exposure: The forest blocks the view and east wind.

South exposure: With the exception of a few view-breaking bushes, the south exposure is of the lake.

West exposure: The northwest exposure is to the forest, with the exception of the open swath where the old roadway runs. The true-west exposure is along the shoreline.

The firepit has a slight slope toward the drop down to the beach ...

Tentsites east of the firepit have a slight slope toward the lake ...

More tentsites on the old roadbed to the west, which are absolutely level ...

General description: This campsite is good for large groups. However, it is not a particulary sunny site. In the busy season, it may have the odd camper hiking on the old roadbed and passing right through the campsite.

Overall accessibility: The short slope up from the beach is this site's only accessibilty issue.
