Landing Comments:

Easy on sand, pebble, cobble beach. More rocks at small point. Vessel traffic in Samsun Narrows. Protected from SE by islet. Sign visible from water. S aspect.

Camp Comments:

Beach floods at Springs. Several sites on old road in upland at SE end of beach. 2 smaller, marginal beach-top sites on gravel. Picnic table. Pit toilet. No fires in upland.

Other Comments:

Attractive, view. Please do not land on sensitive small Musgrave Rock AKA ‘Cactus Island’ just off site. From parking just off Musgrave Road, road leads SW to private residence, but branches S as trail along old roadbed ending at site. Unmarked hiking trails in adjacent Musgrave Greenbelt. Water at seasonal creek, waterfall reported nearby.
