Landing Comments:

Cleared boat run on small cobbles, pebble, through gaps in boulders, 5-10% grade. Exposed S aspect. Several options at low water but limited pocket beach only at high water. Prone to blockage by drift logs. Alternate beach 30 m to W at creek mouth has smaller more rounded stones, but access to tent sites more awkward. Reasonable portable boat stowage at beach top. Prominent sign visible from water.

Camp Comments:

2 very small level cleared sites in steep forested upland near landing. Large wooden tent platform, several other small sites on open mossy rock bluffs to SW accessed by bridge across creek then up steep, rough trail. 200 m carry to upper sites. Composting toilet up trail above landing. Steel food bin near landing below trail, lower tent sites. Visitor log book. Picnic table on bluff. Fire bucket at landing.

Other Comments:

Water at seasonal creek. Sunny beach, bluff, views from high sites. Keep to cleared trails on bluffs to prevent damage to mosses, vegetation. Squamish (Coast Salish) name txwnaḿ Chá7elkwnech. Aka Thornbrough Point.
