Landing

Topography of under-water approach: Steep drop-off, rocky.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Fairly narrow, steep and rocky landing.

View from water. Note the steep rise from the landing. The large boulder is to the right. ...

Looking west .. reasonably open, but with only one seating place.

Looking south towards the large tentsite among birch trees.

Campsite

Regular or low-maintenance: Regular. However, itís a poorly maintained site. Thunderbox was rotten, I called the park staff upon departure.

Size of open ground area: medium sized.

Extent of tree cover: The tent sites are sheltered by trees. The firepit is partially sheltered.

Degree of levelness: There is a small landing, then a climb to the firepit. The two tent sites are level with the firepit, and there is a third tent site that is further inland, that is even higher and much more sheltered.

Number of tent sites: 3.

North exposure: Shoreline.

East exposure: Trees.

South exposure: Shoreline.

West exposure: Lake.

General description: A medium-sized campsite with a small rocky landing, and a steep climb to the main campsite. The boulder is a lovely place to have dinner and breakfast, with a westerly view. The large tent site sits among birch trees and is quite scenic.

Overall accessibility: Poor.
