General description: Old growth pines dominate this campsite. With the height of the trees, it has a very open feel to it. Back of site is level, while the front angles slightly toward the water. Many places to pitch a tent, or hang a hammock. A picnic table compliments this site.

Overall accessibility: While landing and disembarking are not an issue, there is a steep 2m climb to the site.

Plenty of seating around the firepit.
