Campsite maintenance: regular

North exposure: Scrubby forest blocks the northmost wind.

East exposure: Dense forest.

South exposure: Shoreline bushes block much of the south view across the lake.

West exposure: The view westward is up the narrows between the two halves of Booth Lake.

General description: This campsite is not good for larger groups. While it has a section of narrow beach to the southeast, its main rocky shoreline is close to one of its tentsites. In the buggy season, it catches the prevailing northwest breeze nicely. It also has a super sunset view! The beach continues for a great distance to the southeast, providing a lakeside walk between campsites 6 and 7. And, the thunderbox location was not very private from the campsite.

Overall accessibility: The short slope up from the beach means this campsite is close to the water and quite accessible.
