Landing Comments:

Easy pebble upper beaches on both shores with larger rocks, boulders lower down. Choice of beaches facing NE or SW. Many drift logs on exposed SW facing beach, so beach with SE aspect usually preferred. 2024 report that “access is blocked by a large fir tree lying across the entrance E. would be very hard to remove but it is possible to wade or carry boats by a small opening on the E side of the cove.” Beaches flood at Springs.

Camp Comments:

Undeveloped but comfortable site. Level headland has some clear areas, but mostly scrub, Few trees, thin soils.
