Bear Island Airfield

Not much is known about this unusual little airfield,

including its date of construction, or its purpose.

The airfield takes up almost the entire length of Bear Island, in the middle of Crescent Lake,

1 mile east of Crescent City.

I had a good friend who lived for some time in a small frame house on Bear Island, Fl. He had a small outboard boat to go to Crescent City for groceries, etc. And also had a small generator for powering a well pump and electricity. We flew him out on the short airstrip in a Piper Apache along with three of us in the plane and the generator. Quite an experience, used the entire overgrown runway and lifted off at the last moment. We all held our breath until we got airborn.
