Landing Comments:

Low gradient smooth beach of prominent red sand. N aspect, exposed to NE winds. Surf possible.

Camp Comments:

Semi exposed, undeveloped. Flat spots in mossy forest overlooking W side of beach or camp on W or E beach, except at Springs. More beach sites at Neaps. Maybe only 3 or 4 upland forest sites that will need brushing. At least 10 beach sites, tide permitting.

Other Comments:

Attractive. Eye-catching orange-red sand. Water at creek crossing beach with pool at W end of beach. Trail leads over hill to larger creek at E end of beach. Tug wreck buried in sand. SE of Chest Island, S side of Smith Sound aka Wheelhouse Bay.
