A perfect spot after a long hike.

It was a 2.5 mile hike of all sorts of terrain. Scenery was perfect. Not much for available tent sites or hammock sites. It could fill up fast.  Has a fire pit and water is super clear. Very quiet and was mosquito free till darkness set in. I would definitely camp here again.

Small and quaint, but does the job - on the NCT in MN

Super easy to find, right off the North Country Trail!

This is a long campsite. I mean, it's off the trail and kind of long and skinny from the trail down to the water. Water seems to be fairly easy access off the site itself. There is a log bench situated right next to the fire ring. Most sites in this area seem to be set up that way. The view was great…how pretty to wake up to the lake! The tent pad seemed fairly level too.

Didn't appear to be a whole lot of room for extra tents, meaning, I don't think this would be a great spot for more than a few campers that were staying in the same tent (or didn't mind getting creative with tent set up), and I don't think the tent pad would accommodate a large tent (read: larger family), but it would be perfect for a solo hiker or a couple. A few trees, but nothing that seemed terribly easy for hammock camping.
