Landing Comments:

Enter creek mouth at S end of long, wide sand beach 350 m long. Turn after passing gravel berm. S aspect. Offers more shelter than open beach landing. Creek mouth may dry at low water.

Camp Comments:

Some beach campsites present. Possible nearby location might be better or more accurate – reported by SeaTrails Charts Seattle, WA as N48D 59.9520M W125D 08.0640M (map datum unknown) so site could be further to W i.e. at opposite end of beach, away from creek mouth. However, this or another site was assessed at N48D 59.825M W125D 07.911M NAD 83 in creek mouth on grassy patch on N bank. Site might flood at Springs or in wet weather.

Other Comments:

Water nearby at year-round creek. Also nearby seep.
