General description: A very open site with an almost 270 degree view of the lake. Also, very open to the elements as there are very few trees to offer any protection.
The thunderbox is the peak of luxury backcountry camping, even if it is located very close to the camping area. It does offer a great view of the lake while you are "contemplating life".

Overall accessibility: The steep climb is the only accessibility issue.


Looking from thunderbox to the southwest.

This one even has a door!
