Landing Comments:

Easy on small moderately steep beach in protected cove. Small rocks in centre beach. Scattered boulders, small flat mudflat shelf at low water. Land at all tides, most weather. NE aspect.

Camp Comments:

Site currently best suited to day use (2024). 2 or 3 beachtop tent sites at E end between stumps. Path to 5-6 additional potential tent sites requiring levelling. Hammock opportunities. Limited space at high water.

Other Comments:

Year-round water at cove head from lake-fed Riley Creek. Attractive. Sunny. Former cannery location. Old growth forest.
