General description: Sites CS #8, CS#9, and CS#10 are connected by a well worn path. This campsite has an open view of the lake. It is a very flat and level site that is wider than it is deep. A nice firepit that is open to wind from the west, but otherwise is well protected. Site can accommodate a large number of tents easily. Even though there a many trees that break up the site, the spaces are large enough and flat enough to erect 2 or 3 man tents.

Overall accessibility: Other than a steep rise from the water to the site proper, no accessibility issues.

Path from CS#9 to CS#8.

Path from CS#10 to CS#9.

Pretty good view of lake.
