    Have you come across this thread? There was some discussion of this strip. It's a neat little spot but don't expect to walk anywhere for lunch unless you brought your swim trunks.

    I have been there. Grass strip on an island not much larger than the strip. I think it's a little less than 2000' grass was good condition. No problem for my 172 with no wheel pants.

    Obviously approach is over the water. I just wanted to "collect the strip" so I didn't try to arrange transportation to the mainland. I have been told that the owners may ferry you to shore of someone could meet you with a boat.

    It is private and you have to obtain permission before landing,

    I'm glad it's in my logbook. Will probably try to fly there again this summer if the rain ever stops...

    Just Curious.....who did you contact for permission? Are the names listed in Foreflight accurate?

    So unfortunately the number has been disconnected. I may have found a few leads on a proper contact but no luck yet. Seems like the owners are both in their 80's now. Fingers crossed as this looks like a fun spot to land.
