Landing Comments:

Approach from S. Rough rock-strewn entrance lip to small gravel basin at high water. Awkward with kelp, weed at low water. Boats arriving at low water could be tied nearby until basin floods to give easier access or face long carry. Advisable to land at mid-high water. SW aspect. Exposed to S.

Camp Comments:

Small fairly level upland bluff sites on peninsula among arbutus, firs. Some tent sites overlook passage to E. One panoramic site on open mossy bluff has active eagle nest May 2018, 2019. Stay 100 m away Mar to Aug. Site to S with possible easier access off separate beach short distance to S.

Other Comments:

Attractive. View. Oyster lease at foreshore appears inactive 2014, 2016, 2018. Some debris remains (2019).

    Eagle is no longer in nest on one end of site. Camping should be all right there. Site inspected July 5, 2022. Low tide is not ideal for landing. Better in mid to high tide to land or launch.
