Landing Comments:

Difficult on exposed rocky beach of cobble, some boulders at high water. Sand at low water. Potential for high surf, particularly in Fall, Winter, Spring. Swell normal. Watch for a back eddy at the point that gives protection from surf.

Camp Comments:

10 platforms added 2023/24. 2 food bins. Pit toilet. Access to camping area via hiking trail reportedly requires 3 m or lower tide height, but unclear if this is maximum tide level to access site from landing beach. Approximate location only. Fire pits. Camping fees apply year-round. May pre-pay permit via Internet, but no reservable sites. Fee $10.00 per adult per night (2018) via BC Parks Backcountry Registration System.
