the narrow sandy harbour

At the tip of the point is a nice little narrow bay with a sandy bottom that you can canoe into to land your canoe, but you'll have to step high onto some roots to get up to the main campsite. It's easier than coming in off the rocks to the south.

the large rock makes a good "table"

The fire pit is located in a large open area. There is a large knee-high rock near the fire pit that you can use as a "table" for meal preparation. It must be a busy site as you have to got far in to the woods to find firewood.

There's a small, flat rock at the north side of the site (just beyond the large fallen tree) that gives you a nice sunset view and NW exposure for stargazing. A large sloping rock on the south side is great for sunning and usable for water access. Swimming is good off this rock, but be careful - the water is shallow. Don't dive in.

The sloping rock on the south side

There are several flat places to pitch a tent further into the woods.
