General description: A flat and smooth site that is on a small penninsula that could easily accomodate 3+ tents. Very well protected from the wind, with a 20m sandy beach that is exposed to the sun for the majority of the day. The portage to Perley Lake can be seen from the north shore.

Overall accessibility: Very accessible because of the shallow water and the small rise to the site is not an issue.
