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:

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 for to accessing site from landing beach. Approximate location only. Bear bins for food storage. Fire piits. 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.
