Easy to get into water - either by beech or smooth rocks
Weedy / Rocky / Deep swimming edge
Comments Very weedy but nice and shallow making water warm close to swim by launch. A few snakes since it's so shallow they like to skirt shore, but great for launching since it is shallow.
Ease to get to / or back if bad weather
Ease pulling up to or accessing site with canoe / kayak
Proximity (distance) to marina
Novice / Kid / Elderly paddle friendly
Comments RelitivelyEasy to get back to Hartley Bay Marina - easist campsite on OX Bay to get back to the marina from since wind usually pushes you back.
High rock cliffs - Lookouts, Low-lying rocky points
Views / sunsets
Comments It's in a channel so you are a little sheltered by lake, and in a tributary off lake. Great hillside lookout of the bigger lake short walk from campsite. The rocks are fantastic the formation along the tributary edge. It's fun to paddle across the tributary just looking at the awesome formations.
Low boat traffic
Sheltered by wind
Cottages in view
Comments Excellent for seclusion - only the odd fisherman goes in there.
