The grasses are high.

Special Features

There is great fishing off the beach and at the Humpy Creek. There is access to an extensive trail system state maintained. The inter- tidal zone is very large and there is lots of marine life. There is lots of wildlife around the creek. Black bears are abundant.

What To Bring

Bring WATER. The water source is the Humpy Creek but it must be boiled for 12 minutes to be potable. Bring your own cooking utensils, sleeping bags, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, garbage bags, and fire starter. There is wood around but it can be very wet and it makes sense to bring dry kindling and paper from town.
