Landing Comments:

Low gradient sand beach to N of point protected from surf except in NE outflow wind. N aspect. Sand beaches S of point often have surf, but headlands give varying protection to parts. S aspect.

Camp Comments:

Beach N of point has 4 tent pads, picnic table, picnic shelter, fire pit, toilet, metal food lockers. Random beach camping on sand permitted on at least 3 separate S beaches, preferred by some paddlers. Plenty of room. No fees (2018). Expect long carries.

Other Comments:

Water at seasonal creek on S beach, E side accessible on foot at low tide or by bushwhacking. Trail connects across point N, S. Attractive. View.. See: Rugged Point Provincial Park .
