Landing Comments:

Sand beach. Strong currents immediately in front of launch in tidal narrows. Currents run at 50% rate of Dodd Narrows. Rock reefs divide channel.

Camp Comments:

No camping.

Other Comments:

AKA False Narrows ramp. Part way along El Verano Drive off South Road. Many dinghies on shore used for access to Mudge Island by residents. Parking space for many vehicles, but often busy.
