It is a beautiful, picturesque cove that is perfect for boaters who want a relatively quiet, low-traffic area to launch.

However, Echo Cove, with its wonderful sites and teeming wildlife, is still a quaint and popular place for local boaters and kayakers to launch. Echo Cove is situated near a popular camp ground. There are outhouses available on site as well as a dumpster for trash disposal.
