General description: This is a fairly open hill-top island campsite. It's in some disrepair, with garbage present .. old tarp, bag of charcoal, beer bottles, and chopped down saplings). It was very low on firewood, but lots was available around the lake). It has views of the lake to the south and west. It's best suited for parties of 4 or less. Unfortunately, the thunder box is very close to the living area.

Overall accessibility: It's a difficult portage from Cauliflower to Little Cauliflower, with a poorly maintained trail which is hilly and muddy. The campsite itself is easily accessible, although it has a somewhat steep entry from canoe landing area.
