Landing Comments:

Easy on protected shell beach at all water levels. S aspect. Vessel traffic hazards.

Camp Comments:

Gravel tent pads. Hammock opportunities. Pit toilet. Picnic tables, food cache bin. Sunny SW aspect. Fee charged year-round. Reservable May – Sept. No fires, including below high tide mark. Sensitive areas have been damaged by trampling, so avoid overflow camping. Large parties should use Princess Bay instead. See camping

Other Comments:

Attractive. View. Extensive trails. Large midden. Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.

    The word on the street (marine trail?) from a local guide is that this site tends to attract a rowdier and possibly less-considerate camper than do Princess Bay or Arbutus Point.
