General description: This site was visited in mid-July and there wasn't any sign that this site had been used during the year. This site is open to the sky as most of the trees are on the perimeter. It is well protected from all wind except a wind from the south. A very level site, with numerous tent placement options, though it was hard to tell due to the long grasses growing. There are also potential tent pads just to the north of the firepit, as this area is sparsely treed and fairly level.

Overall accessibility: Very accessible. Landing on the south shore is only a couple of meters from the site. Landing on the west shore is a bit further, but very level walk.
