Camp Notes:
This is a great campsite! We had high water and went right through the rocks mentioned in another comment here with no problems (thank goodness!). I can't think of anything negative about this campsite. A great spot. One really great, large tent pad, and others that will do, too. Good sunny spots, good shady spots, and good hammock trees, too. We found a perfect place to put our bear barrel: there's a big rock not too far from the campfire area that is a tad undercut; stuck them in there (just wide enough for our bear barrels, but probably not big enough for one of those blue barrels) and they were out of the sun the entire day and in a nice cool spot. Very quiet area; peaceful and relaxing.

Camp Notes:
I stayed in 3 of the 5 campsites in the Slim Lake chain. Of the 3, this was by far my favorite! It's very private, as it's the only campsite on the entire lake. For this size of lake, I'm quite surprised this doesn't have at least 1 more campsite. There is a rocky shoreline and one particular area of the rock makes an absolute perfect chair with backrest, so you can sit near the water and fish. I spent hours here just reading and fishing. The mornings were great as the water was quite calm and the sun coming up on my face was glorious! Caution! When coming into campsite, go AROUND the rocks in the water (100' out). There are hidden rocks just below the surface if you try to go in between them!

Great out of the way site and lake. Very nice view of small cliff to the east. Stayed here on a day drip from Slim.
