Great campsite. A bit of a hike up from the water, but a lot of open space. Sort of two levels - sleeping level and campfire level.

Camp Notes:
Negatives: lots of people and bugs. Postives: impressive scenery, being able to hear the falls at night, and the swimming was great because you could dive in right off of shore. An awkward bonus, my first son was most likely conceived here.

Camp Notes:
Nice site in a high rock-faced cove. This site has huge, towering pines and is close to the falls and Rose lake overlook. You may be disturbed by some traffic since it is so close to Stairway Portage (one person even played Jimi Hendrix from a boom box while on the portage!!!). A bit of a walk up to the grate from the water, landing is just "OK". Beautiful views--especially of the distant sawtooth hills at sunrise!
