General description: This campsite is unfortunately accessible to 'off-season' vehicles from a nearby logging road. Tire tracks and the odd bit of 'furniture' show up here. However, during the summer, it does offer a plenty of room for large groups, along with a meadow-trail-connection to the portage to Ryan Lake.
Overall accessibility: This campsite is quite accessible, perhaps to a fault.
