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.

Very advanced campsite to get to and lots of open water to traverse in lake. But the upside is less used campsite since really for advanced paddlers to get to.

Very large campsite - can easily put 2 tents on spot. Not as windy, and buggy a little bit. You really come to this site for the view! and seclusion.
