General description: A large site with a significant slope from back to front. Not much of the site is usable for tenting. The area below the firepit (northeast) could be used in a pinch, but would still not allow a level sleep. Very treed, but a nice view of the lake from the ledge that fronts the site.

Overall accessibility: : Unloading a canoe is no problem. There is steep step up to a narrow, side sloped path that leads up to the site, that could be slippery when wet.
