Landing Comments:

Easy on broad pebble, gravel beach with some sand. S aspect. Protected from NW. Possible surf in SW wind, swell but reefs, kelp protect shores close to NW entrance. Treat reefs to W carefully on approach.

Camp Comments:

Beach camping on fine gravel behind drift logs. Possible to clear upland level sites in mostly dense salal with open mossy forest behind. Good, large user-maintained public cabin. Stove. Propane cooker. Pit toilet. S aspect. Sunny.

Other Comments:

Attractive. Water at year-round creek approx 1 km S. Smaller seasonal creek closer to site. Hiking trails to Rowley Reefs Peninsula north from cabin and to Gooding Cove via old road, starting approx 750 m S along beach, marked by hung floats.
