I like this site. It’s a point spot built on a small slope. I’m not going to lie, my visit here was short because the bugs were absolutely atrocious.

Terrain: There’s a gentle rise throughout the site. Ground cover is mostly pine needles and dirt with a few rockburgs sticking out here and there. There are a few patches of grass as well, which may have been partly responsible for bringing the bugs. It’s a decent sized spot.

Canoe Landing: The shoreline merges with the lake fairly seamlessly. We were able to pull up parallel and get in and out easily. The underwater approach was fine, no large rocks or obstacles that I can recall.

Fire Pit: The fire pit here is nothing special, but I really like its location. It’s close to the water with a nice view out over Kakasamic. There are a couple of decent grills hanging around as well.

Tent Sites: This site is on a hill, which means that while there is plenty of flat space, you couldn’t really call it level. There’s room for a couple of tents up the hill and you could probably find a spot closer to the water if you wanted to get creative.

Swimmability: So, this is clearly not a swimming spot unless you’re one of those worms from Tremors, but it is another example of a tent spot. The best picture I have of the swimming area is the one from the canoe landing. I’d say this is an okay site to swim from, but the underwater terrain was a bit mucky from what I can recall.

Accessories: There are benches around the fire pit, a couple of grills hanging from trees and that’s about it. 

Views: Being a point site you’ve got a nice view south and west. Sunsets for everyone!

Notes: Like I said, I didn’t spend a lot of time on this site, but the time I did was nice. It seems like a pretty decent spot to stop for a night.
