  • On the way to Shannon falls, Squamish about 1 hour by car from Vancouver. Sunny day, please stop by in particular. I think I stopped to rest by parking days happened to be stopped in the rain and saw nothing but the toilet, so.

  • This park is easy to find, right off Hwy 99 38km north of Vancouver, BC. Watch for the left turn lane. The park is located right on the inlet and there are towns nearby for supplies. There are also active train tracks that run adjacent to the park, so you may hear trains and train whistles at night. The beach is very rocky not pebbles, rocks. It looked like a good place to sprain an ankle but the view from our campsite was truly wonderful. There is a large ferry pier where we spent part of the afternoon watching harbor seals play. There is also a SCUBA park with ladder for easy access away from the boat launch. The campsites are very close together so there is very little privacy. On the plus side is that lots of sites are right on the beach and there are lots of sites with power. There are also some really nice walk-in sites also right on the beach. All the sites were fairly level.
  • Free 👍🏽boat launch. Free great parking for trailers.Not the best at very low tides. Great place to stop for a rest/snack/pick nick. Bathrooms. Awesome campsites.
  • Nice Park to relax with great views. In summer the place is booked month(s) in advance . It is a good test stop on your drive from Or too Squamish and Whistler. There is a nice Dive site also
  • Great place to stop over on your way to Whistler from Vancouver. Sunsets from the pebble beach is one of the best in the area
  • Beautiful Place but tough to get into. Very popular but only 44 sites
