Improved tent site w/ fire ring, food storage box, latrine, and signs. Yurt nearby up a trail. Footbridge over creek good for fishing pinks. Water source. Watch for bears during pink salmon season.
Power boats go slow. Murky water, shallow.
Moderate. Shallow approach a long way out.
Watch for day breezes and bears in pink salmon season.

August 20, 2016 In the early afternoon, hiked down to Kilcher Beach from Kilcher Homestead. At 1:15pm lunched & paddle to Humpy Creek. Seas relatively calm up to 6" swells. Winds SW about 5knots. Saw 2 Loans & several sea otters. Arrived at Creek at 2:35pm and fished for a couple of hours. At 5:00 pm tried to cross back to Kilcher Beach but turned back to Mallard Bay to wait for better conditions. Lunched from Mallard at 6:15pm and crossed over to Kilcher Beach arriving at 7:25pm. Seas relatively calm. Swells up to 1.5'. Wind SW about 10k. Saw more sea otters & several loans. At 7:45pm hiked back to vehicle at Homestead.
