Landing Comments:

Easy on protected beach of gravel, large pebbles, small cobble. Larger rocks at low water. E aspect.

Camp Comments:

Camp on possibly damp road end. 3 or 4 above beach, others to N of creek in upland. Some local access evident. Benches for hikers at trail end. Fallen tree blocks one site (2017). Potential for additional sites.

Other Comments:

Water at seasonal creek at N end of beach by campsites. Recreation Site or Reserve. Mainly intended for Eagle Lake where setup is for day use. Well-marked trail or rough road connects on S branch to Eagle Lake, Big Bay (3 km), on N branch to airstrip (1 km) . Bassett Bay is local name; not charted. Anchorage. Another possible site lies 450 m NE but has poorer landing.
