Campsite maintenance: Regular.

Size of open area: 25m x 8m.

Extent of tree cover: 100% at back half of site.

Degree of levelness: Firepit area is noticeably sloped, tenting area is good.

Number of level tent sites: 3.

North exposure: Channel to North Arm.

East exposure: trees.

South exposure: trees.

West exposure: water, eastern shore of lake.

General description: Even thou the area seems large, the first 15m are not useful for tenting (possible for a hammock). The tenting area is well protected, but open to the north. A 2nd firepit has been made in the tenting area, but I don't recommend using it as there are low hanging tree branches very close.

Overall accessibility: No real issues, the climb to the tenting area is angled.
