Landing Comments:

Deep bay with steep pebble, gravel beaches. SE aspect. Many piled drift logs make landing difficult at mid, high water. Beach normally floods. Well protected from W. Open to SE swell. Wash from N bound ships comes ashore. Reporter in 2024 considered high water landing too dangerous to attempt due to drift log pileup.

Camp Comments:

Undeveloped. Small areas of beach gravel give access to small cleared upland forest site on NE of bay. Minor brushing may be needed. Clearcut behind. Beach sites might be possible at Neaps, avoiding carry over drift logs, deadfall.

Other Comments:

Usable for NW conditions at low water but marginal.
