Landing Comments:

Shell, gravel, pebble beach in hidden small cove SE of Cranston Island. Site hard to locate but coordinates considered accurate for landing if not actual site – appears to be upper beach coordinate.

Camp Comments:

Room in overgrown upland W of beach for large group with up to 8 sites, but re-brushing required. Beach camping om mixed gravel at neaps for 1 – 3 tents. A reporter located no upland site but reported small beach site as marginal – floods at Springs. Another report of 1 usable upland site on former cabin location, 2 others need brushing. J Kimantas/M Luce reports location further W upland at N 53.304000, W -129.680667 behind a curved beach.
