Gorgeous tent site - has platforms, fire rings, and vault toilets. No running water or bear boxes/cable - be sure to bring your rope to hang food. We saw no bears but there were some very bold chipmunks. The pond has a stream flowing out of it so plenty of water to treat or filter. Great if you are just starting out like we are! Hike in is a little rocky in places, we did it in the late summer, I imagine it would get pretty muddy in the spring!
