Landing Comments:

Aim for the NW corner of small bay keeping large rock just on left side. Preferable landing to river mouth in surf conditions. Exposed rock shelf at water levels below 1 m makes landing more difficult. See image for route.

Camp Comments:

Beach sites. Toilet. Food storage bin. Dispersed camping permitted on beach only. Camping fees apply year-round. May pre-pay permit via Internet, but no reservable sites. Fee $10.00 per adult per night (2018) via BC Parks Backcountry Registration System.

Other Comments:

Water at stream about 50 m E of landing. Beach often used by hikers. Quieter than beach to W. Lies on Juan de Fuca hiking trail. See: Juan de Fuca Provincial Park .
