Dawson's Landing has a parking area for accessing the estuary, and is available for overnight parking in self-contained vans.


Access is down a moderately steep gravel road, but the parking area at the bottom is level, and would make for a good place to have a quiet night overlooking the estuary. 


There is a walkway to explore, or you could kayak out into the estuary if so equipped.


We were greeted by a hungry hen, who I imagine is well trained to ask for food by other visitors.
