General description: The northmost of five campsites that were originally the shoreline part of an old drive-in campground. This campsite more-or-less runs into the adjacent campsite to the south.

Overall accessibility: With the grade up from the water being gentle, this campsite is quite accessible.

Firepit is centrally located in campsite.

Unfortunately the stone-ring appears to have been relocated away from the actual firepit.

The campsite's large open area provides sites for numerous tents.
