General description: Site is on a penninsula. The front of site is very open with trees on the perimeter. The back tenting area has good tree coverage and better protection from wind. Very level site that slopes slightly at the perimeter, with numerous options for pitching a number of tents.

Overall accessibility: The preferred landing would be the south side of the site, where gear is unloaded onto rock, then a short carry to the site. The northern landing area has less room to place gear, and is slightly more steep.
