I think this is marked in the incorrect spot, but I have not corrected it since I could not visit the campsite. I searched the bay where this is marked and did not find anything resembling a campsite. I then went around the point to the north, and there was a large sand beach. The sand beach is probably the campsite, but I could not verify because there were a couple of people taking a swimming break (not camping, just beached the motorboat to go swimming). If the beach is the campsite, the site looked like it could be a little swampy. I don't know, though, since I could not explore it.
