General description: An amazing campsite surrounded by growth of 100'+ pines. Good level site with many tent pads as site is not impeded by many trees. Firepit area is well protected from any wind and is at a lower level than the of rest of the site. Good drainage from anywhere on the site. The only negative is the steep climb from the takeout.

Overall accessibility: If I'm exagerating a 5 meter climb from the takeout, it isn't by much. Once you are on the site the rest of the island is on the same level. There is much to explore as the island is quite large and the site is located in the middle of the island.
