Great hike in and plenty of spots available

The hike in was great. We’ll maintained path. Can get a little confusing without a map as there are many and some go off to other camp sites. So take a map or have a GPS.

Private and Calm

As long as you don’t go on holiday weekends, it is an enjoyable camp to either hike or boat into. There are plenty of spots to pitch tents and places to fish and swim.

not for holidays

it gets noisy and crowded on holiday weekends. I enjoy midweek isolation. the Rocky shore is tough on canoes and kayaks.
