Re: Napatree Scheduled for Friday Sep 30. Need help
Assuming that you're wading not boating......
Ignore the no parking signs and just drive in and park at the beach club where the other cars are. You'd get towed in the summer for this but it's okay this time of year.
Both the inside and outside can be good and I walk back and forth to make sure that I'm not missing anything
The best spots on the inside are right at the mouth of the harbor and all the way out near "the pond" where there's some nice flats.
On the outside, I walk the whole beach looking for signs. If you're there at low tide, a long fly cast will hit the drop-off.
Out near the point, there's a boulder field. Hard to wade, but the the fish like it.
If you are brave enough to wade through the poison ivy, there's WWII bunkers to explore out there too

I guess that those bunkers are not from WWII but from Fort Mansfield, a coastal artillery installation from the turn of the century.
