  • Beautiful site! We stayed in our camper right on the Ocean, nice walking on the beach and investigating tidal pools at low tide.  more »
  • This is awful. What kind of provincial park does not provide toilet paper. Seriously. Be prepared to bring some so that you don't get surprised. No where does it say that they don't supply it until yo...  more »
  • This is a beautiful Provincial Campground with great hosts, Shelley and Peter. Being a Class C Campground, it is a little more rustic than some and there are no reservations (except for the group site...  more »

  • WiFi a little slow, but other than that nice view of Powell River. I am looking forward to a return visit. Keep your camera handy. I missed a pic of the cute little weasel that lives at the far end bridge.
  • Wonderful camp ground, beautiful view and trails, great caretakers. The only thing is the birds will wake you up as early as 4:30am. So good for early risers a tad annoing for sleeping in.
  • Absolutely gorgeous beach park. Great for day trips and boating as well as overnight camping. Tent sites are up on the hill so you get sun and a view from your site. A really stunning location makes up for lack of full washrooms, etc. We will be back!
  • Clean sites, great hosts and good value for what you get. 15$ per night and a great sunrise and sunset over the straight everyday.
  • Scenary and price can't get better. BRING YOUR OWN SHOWER. And POWER . 2 BOATRAMP S with no DOCKS.
