Provoking Lake - East or West sites?

Hi folks!

My solo fall backpack trip has been canned due to doctor's orders, so friends and family have stepped up to join me in a trek to Provoking Lake. I know what the Provoking East campsites are like, but weekend availability of them is slim for the next month. Can anyone advise me on their thoughts of the sites on Provoking West?

Thank you for any advice offered.

The 8 sites on the North part of Provoking (even though they're called West) are where you'll find the best ones. They're also the shortest distance from the trail head so that might be good news. From left to right, #2 and #3 are quite sloped and not as good, #4 is nice but touches #5 - not the best for privacy if you'd like it. The rest are all great sites.

The 2 sites by themselves on the West side are just ok. Little sun exposure in the PM, tough to find good spots for tents (but better for hammocks). Good luck!
