Degree of levelness: Very level surface. Being so level and so close to the lake's water level, this site could get quite wet in heavy rain.

North exposure: Forest.
East exposure: Forest.
South exposure: View of the lake.
West exposure: Partial view of the lake, beyond numerous trees.
General description: The campsite is level, but low to the lake level and appears slow to drain after a rain. Tree canopy covers it entirely. With no sunning rocks, no breaks in the tree canopy, and trees on three sides .. this could be a damp and buggy campsite in the early season. It is located on a relatively small and nondescript bay .. all-in-all a "boring" campsite.
Overall accessibility: Aside from coming ashore, this site is very accessible.
