  • It was sooo good. We've been at Doug at the campsite. He is a special guy, that will remember everyone who sees him and converse with him. On the walk to the sea stacks it started horribly to rain and Doug was in concern to us, because we were not so fast again. But sometimes a family longer than adults only needs ;) He was definitely very happy to have us then finally back in place. Doug is a really good person.

  • San Josef Bay and it's beaches is awesome. Surely the rest of Cape Scott Provincial Park is as well. It's worth the 60km drive on gravel roads with bumps, holes and lots of dirt. But don't go there an...  more »
  • We went in Sept. /17 . The road was tough ... I was really tired by the end of the drive out . I only hope that the car rental place does not look at the bottom of the car ! Lots of stones thrown up t...  more »

  • This is an out of the way spot which one must travel to on a very long gravel road. It also has a hiking trail for those of the adventurous nature.
  • I could have spent much more time here -- the Sea Stacks are amazing. Was going to return the following day to do the Fisherman Trail, the long, muddy and bumpy road in took away our enthusiasm. Next time.
  • One of my absolute favourite hikes! Been there 3 times and planning my 4th. Nothing like cooking some Smokies and watching the sun set into the ocean.
  • Our hike up Cape Scott was one of my fondest memories. Truly beautiful and although the hike itself was at times ruthless, the feeling of emerging at the final beach was glorious. So beautiful. We would have loved if the second campsite had been in better repair at the time of our visit, but it's hard to complain. The whole experience was great! Highly recommended. But be sure to pack out what you pack in, and make the place even more pristine than when you arrived. (We did get a rock chip in our windshield from the long, gravelly, often pot-holed road we had to take to get there, so be warned).
  • Cape Scott is waaaaaaay off the beaten path which only contributes to it's jaw-dropping beauty. It's difficult to describe how amazing this place is. The energy is pure and soothing. It's one of my very favorite places on this little blue planet of ours.
