The location of this campsite is marked by a series of large boulders just offshore, each separated by a patch of open water. There is also a good-sized pine near the fire grate that is easily visible from the lake. The campsite has four tent pads. One of the pads is quite large and very flat. The other three tent pads are smaller and of lesser quality. The latrine is up the hill along a somewhat rooty trail. The canoe landing has a little muck, but not too shabby overall.
