Owned by the U.S. Forest Service, Meeks Bay is a popular Jet Ski and water-ski beachGood place for beachy activities This is a good place for beachy activities such as rowing, canoeing, paddleboating (all rentable), and hanging out in the sun, though all the motors create plenty of noise during summer. My granddaughters and I have canoed from here around the coves and shorelines on either side of the bay. In just a few minutes, you are away from the fracas on the beach. Just watch the boat traffic when you are paddling in and out of the bay. A little cafe here serves snacks and burgers, and there is a 150-unit campground and a few cottages.
