Size of open area: Two small level tentsites amongst and under the trees near to the water. 25' x 35' open area at the top of the rise.

Extent of tree cover: Tree cover over first two tent sites. Less dense canopy over firepit area at the top of the rise.

Degree of levelness: While the campsite is on a substantial grade, each of the three components is level.

Number of level tent sites: 2 small ones close to the water and 2 larger ones at the top of the rise.

North exposure: Line of trees provides broken view of the lake.

East exposure: Trees.

South exposure: Trees.

West exposure: Trees break the view of the lake.

General description: Unique campsite on a bit of a point, with large firepit area at the top of a rise, a choice of private or not-so-private tentsites, and a tree-filtered sunset view.

Overall accessibility: Substantial grade requires fair bit of up-and-down walking to-and-from the water.

Firepit area has plenty of room for a couple of tents (and a view to the north).
