Camp Notes:
Very nice site. Great trees for hanging tarp near the fire; Great tree down the path to the east for hanging food. Was concerned that there would be a lot of traffic through the lake, but it was very quiet. Had the lake to ourselves the first night, sharing it only with the many loons. We had a hard time choosing between this site and the one to the west -- both are very nice sites, but the wind was blowing hard out of the east, so this site offered better shelter. This site is down closer to the water level, while the other site sits up higher on rocky ground. You'll likely be happy with either of these two sites. The site farther east on the lake doesn't look great.

Great campsite we used as a base camp to fish Canoe, Paddle, Crystal, and day trip to the falls. Caught smallmouth right from the campsite as well as around the lake, and a nice pike and walleye. Great tent pads under the pines. Pretty good landing area. Nice campfire area with good log seating. short walk up a hill to the throne.

Decent canoe landing. Great firegrate area with some good log seating. (one with back rest) Several large, flat, pine duff covered tent pads. Latrine not too far away but, still private. Likely there will be alot of traffic passing by on most days.

A very nice site, much better than it looks from the water. Very nice fire grate area. At least three good tent pads and I'm sure there is room for another tent. Good trees for tarp and food pack hanging. Latrine is up the hill, but not too far, and not visible from camp. We were there in high water and the canoe landing was a bit tricky for solos, but not bad. I'm sure the canoe landing is good in normal water levels. A nice site. I'd stay there again.
