Echo Cove, tent camping near/at boat launch?

I there a tent campground at or near the boat launch at Echo Cove? One of my friends seems to think there is but we're having trouble verifying that or finding out more information on who runs it.

I know retreat camping is available at Echo Ranch, SAGA, and the Methodist Camp. But we're looking for tent spots close to the end of the road and about all I can think of is Eagle Beach. Thanks!

You can tent camp at Yankee Cove, but there are not any formal camping spots, so you need to tread lightly and not leave any trace. Any fires should be on the beach below the grass line.

Echo Cove is private Goldbelt Corporation land, and except for the launch ramp and hiking down the beach below the high tide line, closed to anyone but shareholders.

You should check on the State Parks cabins in Point Bridget State Park, especially Blue Mussel. A great bargain if you can find open dates (weekends get booked early in the year). See dnr.alaska.gov/parks/cabins/south.htm#ptbridg
