General description: Southern facing rock gets mid-afternoon sun. Surrounding water is a little marshy. Wouldn't want to swim. Large rock outcropped to the south has ok swimming, if you hike to the end of the rocks (~50 meters). Campsite has an OK view, but a few trees obstruct it slightly. The tent area is protected from the wind but hasn't got a closed-in feeling. Thunderbox is close to the tent sites. Thunderbox could use some maintenance.

Overall accessibility: Easily accessible from canoe put-in but lots of rocks to navigate to get to the water in front of the campsite.
