Landing Comments:

Easy on protected pebble, gravel beach in cove 50 m wide between bedrock walls. S aspect. Moderate gradient. Old concrete boat ramp at centre beach. Drift logs. Low water landing unknown.

Camp Comments:

Possible tent sites on beach if many large drift logs re-arranged but otherwise inaccessible. Potential upland sites in dense scrub currently inaccessible, would require much work. Potential for a few grassy bluff tent sites to E, W. Moderately sheltered. Action needed to curtail invasive blackberry etc growth.

Other Comments:

Attractive. View. Old trails overgrown. Purchased by BC Parks Foundation Nov 2020. Suitable haven for small craft. Action needed to curtail invasive blackberry etc growth.
