Easy on protected white sand tombolo beach that has separate sections at some water levels. Scattered boulders. Currents, reefs. up depending on tides. Approach from E.

Camp Comments:

Camp on beach sand among small boulders or take short trail to upland sites. Smaller islet to S has clear area in forest – coordinates might be N52D 06.073M,W128D 23.352M (Datum not given). N Frazer 2002 found 2 upland sites in salal along 2 paths on SE side of Island 155. Also 2 upland sites either side of old spruce on tiny islet to SE (SW?). Gives position as N52D 06.12M,W128D 23.25M (NAD 27). Report in 2016 says sites on islet are clear but on Island 48 are becoming overgrown in salal. Occasional use by guided parties of up to 12. Primitive toilet. Picnic table, bench on S side.
2019 report received of camp buildings being developed. On “SW side .. a picnic table, outhouse and massive firepit. Also a viewing platform with tent platforms on the larger part of the islet to N”. Developer unknown.
