Landing Comments:

Moderate gradient coarse gravel beach in small drying cove. Boulders with wide gaps at low water. S aspect. Sheltered from N outflow wind but exposed to S. Little or no beach area at Springs. Canoe/kayak rack. Prone to accumulate drift logs. Ship wash from frequent passing ferries. Vessel traffic.

Camp Comments:

Camping not permitted until officially announced.
4 tent platforms on level mossy benches high above beach. Access trail up steep bank near creek steers users away from sensitive bluffs. No fires. No overflow sites – to preserve vegetation. Composting green throne roofless toilet. Canoe/kayak rack.
