Camp Notes:
Paddled in with three adults, two seniors, and three children ages 8-14. We didn't want to go too far and this campsite was just clearing out. Plenty of space for our three tents (6 person, 4 person, and 3 person tents) and it was nice to have an island to ourselves. The walk to the toilet is a bit of a hike but the fire pit is nice and shaded. Being on a point with a bit of a breeze was a selling point for us as it kept the mosquitoes and flies down. Excellent views. Minimal fishing and loons on this lake; the water is fairly brown so we went over to Granite Lake each day to get water - it's accessible via a short, easy portage (hence only 4 stars). Eagles, turtles, mallards, and a beaver were all spotted from the campsite.

Really cool site - lots of tent pads, lots of spots to swim or fish from. awesome huge rock to climb on or use as a wind block. site can be windy, but there are many tent pads that are blocked by trees. beware the flying ants infesting the firegrate area!

This camps site is on a nice point of an island. It does get a bit windswept as it is on a unprotected point. Ok views of sunset. Good landing areas. It has a large rock next to the fire pit which is pretty cool.
