General description: This campsite has a great view and sandy beach. However, it would benefit from protective tarps if weather blows in from the west. Also, there's a logging dorm-camp and a truck road located a short distance to the east, so some sounds could carry over.
Overall accessibility: This campsite is quite accessible.
