Camp Notes:
Best site in the area, with the entire island escaping the burn and nice cedars and spruce all around the campsite. Only one tent pad was really good and the open grass area was not ideal, but there is a lovely sitting and swimming rock to the West and the island is full of gorgeous lichens and cedar waxwings. Overall, a good campsite.

Camp Notes:
A lush green oasis that escaped the ravages of the fires a few years back. Nice canoe landing that also works well for swimming. Well used trails run off in both directions. There is a nice drop off on the SW corner of the island. Great for fishing as well as diving & swimming. Also provides a great vantage point for viewing the sunsets. The only drawback is that the site has lotsa grass & weeds in the camping area. High potential for bug problems.

1- I had to lie about the entry point. We had come in through the Granite River via Canada (had both Canadian and U.S. permits) 2- Back then this was the nicest campsite I had ever seen- lots of tall white pines with numerous soft level tent pads, easy landing, great kitchen area, and a trail to the west side of the island which had a fair drop off that produced a nice walleye or two and a few smallies. My paddling partner caught a 38 inch northern off the landing area. The island was full of spring birds. Wish I had a photo, but I don't.
