This natural area features two units of northern dry-mesic forest on sand spits inland from the Lake Superior shoreline. The forest has large white and red pines that form a super-canopy over white spruce, balsam fir, red maple, white birch, mountain maple, yellow birch and white cedar. The ground layer contains blueberries, large-leaved aster, and several club-mosses. Between the forested sand spit and beach to the north is a sedge meadow, shrub swamp, and bog. The wetland area is an extension of the estuary of the Flag River, which separates the two units.
