Landing Comments:

Mixed low gradient beach in bay, mostly 30 – 60 mm gravel. SE aspect. Some oysters, scattered boulders, patches of gravel, sand. Moderately long carry at low water. Easy shore access up low bank with trail.

Camp Comments:

One wooden tent pad, one clearing, one smaller site for tents. Might be more tent sites further from cabin but not seen. Beautiful public use cabin or hut built by volunteers 2009, modified, renovated 2014. Accommodates 10 in upper sleeping loft. Composting outhouse toilet (2016). Paddlers advised to carry tent because hut often full. Reservations not accepted. Picnic tables, outside fire pit, sleeping loft, covered porch. No lighting, stove or heater.
