General description: A large, open site with plenty of tenting options. A good view of the lake, but little protection from all but a wind from the west as the site is on a point, and is elevated 5m. The majority of the site is uncovered, with most of the trees coverage occurring at the perimeter of the site. There is a path at the southwest corner of site that leads to a 200m long sandy beach on the southern shore of this point.
Overall accessibility: Without the staircase, this would be a difficult site to access..
