Landing Comments:

Moderately steep pebble beach in cove. SW aspect. Swell hits main beach to give dumping wave in heavy swell conditions. NW beach has less or no swell due to protecting reef at cove entrance, depending on water level. Turn left or NW on entering cove if reef is blocking most swell.

Camp Comments:

Camp at top of NW beach but not at all tide levels. Cliff behind give no easy upland access. Park fees apply. Might be feasible to carry gear to West Coast hiking trail campsite across lagoon at back of main beach to avoid being flooded at Springs.

Other Comments:

Seasonal cabin normally staffed by local Pacheedaht trail guardians. AKA Camper Creek.
