Comments

This island is completely rustic, but has a forest service public use cabin on the NW side, accessed by boat or floatplane. The beach is extremely rocky, then leads to a 10 rocky area that has a 60% slope. There are 6-14 rocks on the beach area. There is a creek nearby with water that is not potable, with a 100 trail leading to it which is thin and soft.

Inside the cabin there are 4 bunks and a woodburning stove. The lower bunks are 24 off the floor. The door to the cabin is 30 wide.

There is a sea lion rookery not too far from here, and great fishing here for Coho from mid-August to late September.
