General description: A good sized site, but because of the slope and uneveness of the ground, there are few choices for setting up a tent. From the landing area, there is a 50m path that leads to the portage to Ironwood Lake. Gear could be transported to the portage, however moving a canoe would be tricky because of the density of the trees.

Overall accessibility: The landing area is not immediately visible. But it is a much better choice than unloading at the very front of the site.
