General description: An OK site, large kitchen and firepit area, all flat. However like most sandy-shorefront campsites you'll have the challenge to keep sand out of stuff. Lots of firewood to be had. Nicely protected from any north winds, but you have full exposure to those easterlies. Appears to be great swimming off sandy beach in the summer. No table present and firepit bordered on her 4 sides by trunk benches.

Overall accessibility: Excellent.
