Landing Comments:

Easy to moderate landing on sand beach. E aspect. Protected from NW. N’erly of 2 beaches. Paddlers mostly land on S half of N beach.

Camp Comments:

Beach sites on sand. Dispersed camping permitted. N Coast hiking trail campsite around headland to SE has pit toilet, food cache, ranger yurt. Awkward access over logs in forest in first surge channel. Camping fees apply 1 May to 30 September. Either pre-pay permit via Internet or at San Josef Bay trailhead, but no reservable sites.

Other Comments:

Water at small seasonal creeks near N Coast hiking trail campsite. Attractive. Cape Sutil proper lies in I.R. so permission required to visit. See: Cape Scott Provincial Park
