    Default Whittier Beach Launch

    Just wondering if it is possible to launch an inflatable on the beach at the head of the bay in Whittier. I was there last weekend and saw several people camping there with empty trailers. I'm thinking about taking the zodiac out there this weekend and do a little camping.

    Default launch

    It's definately possible. My brother launched his Thunderjet there several times. I used to park my truck and trailer there and ride my bike to the ramps. It was just as fast as walking to the parking lot, and one expense was saved. Once they caught on to that, someone erected a cheesy sign that said "No Parking (or camping?) Whittier Harbormaster", or something like that. I don't know if the sign is legit though. Maybe call the harbermaster? If given a "no", ask why not and please post it here.

    Default Camping closed

    Well, just got off the phone with the Whittier police department. They said it is not closed at this time but will be within the week. He would not say why. Maybe so they can make more money in town?
