Landing Comments:

Some exposure to surf. E side of beach usually preferred. W end of beach has low dunes causing erratic waves on lower tides.

Camp Comments:

Random wilderness camping allowed. Camp on beach or on grassy upland. Many options. Primitive pit toilet at W point of beach appears to have been replaced by new green throne (no roof). Please use animal-proof steel food bin.
