Campground
“This is one of the best spots for driftwood and for agate hunting. It's a drive, but the roads are nice to get there. You will loose cell phone reception and likely not have any/much reception when getting there. There's a campground and bathroom facilities. There are some challenging hikes to get to them, but beautiful waterfalls in the area. ”

Grocery or Supermarket
“Little bit of a drive; albeit an easy one just down US 2, but a full-service grocery store when a local stop won't cut it or if you need more than just a few things. Prices are better than a lot of grocery items at the local convenience store.”
