if coming from south, no problem. if coming from north, you need to watch for the sign, you can't really see it till your beside it(or past it, looking back)you know your close if you hear irrigation pumps coming from vt side, site landing is right across from a light colored cedar shake house with a dock. When I was there, there was a small narrow beach area, you'll have to unload here and gently throw(or hand up)your gear up a 5' cliff, once all gear is up, tie rope to your bow and climb up the cliff(it's not too bad, somebody even fixed a rope at the top to aid you) then pull up the boat(on the beach, waves from boat wakes can get pretty big). beware near the top of the stairway, the leaves can be slick, even when dry(a railing or more stairs would be nice here).
