I did not stay on this campsite but we wanted to check out the two sites on the island. From the canoe, there was a rocky shallow beach entry with a small climb to get into the main campsite. The campsite had a reasonably sized fire pit and adequate seating for up to 4 people. There is a single tent pad. The site must share a thunder box with the other campsite on the island. The site seems designed as a spill over for Campsite #4 which is a very large site. It would not be a great site to be on if there was a large group on the other site as there would be very little privacy, and sharing the thunder box could be awkward if not timed well. This site offers nice views on either side as it is elevated. There is very little wind cover here. There was a lot of garbage left behind in the fire pit that we cleaned up.

UPDATE: As of August 2023 it was reported that Campsite #4 and Campsite #5 each have their own thunder box.
