We (two people) camped on this site in August 2023. Unfortunately, I don’t have too many positive things to say about this site, but due to the rain that we were experiencing as we were paddling, we decided that it would be good enough. I also happened to know that the deep part of the lake was directly in front of this site, which would make fishing for lake trout easier. This campsite has a very steep smooth rocky landing, which can be very dangerous when wet. Unpacking isn’t the easiest, nor is bringing your canoe up without a couple of scratches. The fire pit was in shambles when we arrived, but we did our best to piece it back together. It’s quite exposed to the wind, but it still held a solid fire both nights. The hangout area is quite small, and has a planed log and normal log to sit on. There were a decent amount of options for throwing up tarps, which we did the first evening. The tent spot options are minimal, with one spot being flat, and one being on a slight incline. I could not recommend this site for more than 1-2 tents, maximum. I slept on the incline, and it was enough to slightly slide you off your pad through the night. The journey to the thunder box is quite easy, save for the root-y climb at the beginning, as you can see in the pictures. Swimming was top notch, as it was a clear and smooth ramp into the water with no vegetation. The morning sunrise was perfect and unobstructed, however you do lose sunlight in the later afternoon. Fishing was quite optimal, as there is a deep channel directly across the campsite which you can troll for trout all season.
