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 the rear of the campsite. Firepit and tentsites are largely open to the sky, where the old roadbed runs through.

Degree of levelness: The tentsites and firepit areas are smooth and somewhat level. However, the old roadbed has eroded slightly over time toward the lake.

Number of level tent sites: Area for a number of tents on the old roadbed.

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 trees, 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.

General description: This campsite is not particularly good. It is right on the old roadbed and has suffered considerable erosion over the years and lacks any attractive view.

Overall accessibility: The steep and rough rise from the beach makes for serious accessibility problems.
