From Coats, 1959 [1]: "Small scoria mound, with a maximum altitude of 585 feet, on the western shore of Fenner Lake. From the northwest side of its base two flows have escaped. The younger one has crossed the older one and the irregularities of its front now make minor coves and peninsulas near the northern extremity of Fenner Lake. The cone was not examined at close range and nothing is known of the composition of its lava flows." Coats' map labels Lakeshore Cone as basalt, however.
