Great back country campsite for beginners

This was our first backpacking/back country camping trip, and this site was perfect for us. It only takes about 2 miles hiking with our packs to get there, and a creek is adjacent to the campsite so it was easy to get and filter water. Bear cables are close by to hoist our packs at night. Our site was site A, and there were two sites there also B and C. They are not close together, I wouldn't have known two other sites were there unless I had read about it. After we set up camp we nosed around and found one of the others, and it had more flat ground options for a tent than ours. Firepit had some logs to sit on. We had the whole place to ourselves and it was great.
