General description: A OK campsite with open rock that gets afternoon/evening sun, with decent seating by the fire-pit if youíre a small group. Tent-site is a good distance away from the pit, and a nice feeling to it. Itís more inviting than most of the dark and enclosed sites on the neighbouring lakes. However, itís right beside the portage. Depending on the time of year, there could be a lot of traffic passing by. Otherwise it offers good privacy since itís the only site on the lake..

Overall accessibility: Minor inconvenience to disembark and climb up from landing .
