Below is a trip report of my overnight stay at Hells Bay Chickee this past weekend.
So, far I have only spent one night on the Hell's Bay chickee, but I have been there twice. I have spent three nights on the Pearl Bay chickee. It is an amazing place. Looks like you had a great trip. JRC
In some parts of the trail, at the beginning, there was about 6-8 inches of water. For tight twisty trails I believe nothing beats having a 14 foot canoe for which is the reasons I have it as part of my line up. I enjoy getting out and trying different strokes, some of which are shown in the below video.
The portalets was just about full to the top but there was toilet paper. I choose the platform that was up wind from it. I may be looking to go to Sweetwater chickee sometime next month. From now until October camping is free.
Just try paddling Canadian style down here and folks will come running to save ya!
And I ain't 'fraid to camp in the summer down here neither... let me know if you ever want some company.
