We will camp at 3 mile cut.  If you have 4 wheel drive, we will drive down the beach and park at 3 mile, we will be camping on soft compacted sand. Remember to get your permit to drive on the beach at Stanley's General Store. Please bring your VHF radio and set it to channel 69, phones also works.   If you do not have 4 wheel drive partner up with some one or call me. You can also camp at the RV park near by and paddle in.   Tides look good this weekend.

Weather permitting:  We can always slide the trip because we don't have to have reservations.
