Landing Comments:

Shell, cobble beach in small cove. Rugged terrain above beach except for trail. Sheltered from NE. Some shelter from SW.

Camp Comments:

Small clear area in forest. Exposed grassy area up trail to rock inscription near cairn. Douglass suggests continuing 100 m NE along trail to creek to camp. BC Parks do not sanction or ban camping, but make no suggestions. Position reported by Grondin, Nylander as 52.38027, -127.4704

Other Comments:

Water at creek to NE. “Safe Spot” Historical Landmark. Mackenzie Provincial Park. Bella Coola tourism info suggests this as ‘ideal base camp for kayakers exploring Dean Channel’ also Elcho Harbour, Cascade Inlet. Small boat anchorage marginal. See Sir Alexander Mackenzie Provincial Park
