Landing Comments:

Easy on white sand beach. Intermittent rocky band at low water. Kelp, vessel traffic. NE aspect. Surf likely in N, NW wind. Beach across neck to S makes good alternative landing.

Camp Comments:

Semi exposed, undeveloped. Camp on either beach except at Springs. 40 m trail joins N to S beaches. Small cabin, sleeps 2 in good condition (2022) at N51D 22.045M W127D 46.553M between 2 beaches. Rough pit toilet.

Other Comments:

Strategic location. Shipwreck. Intertidal life. Water at creek at far E end of beach. Aka Cranstown Point. Anchorage. See: Cranstown Point Conservancy
