Landing Comments:

Concrete boat ramps, floats, small sand, mud beaches. Reversing tidal river, currents, tidal lake with approx, 1.2 m range. Rough water, turbulence common at lake mouth channel. Difficult to predict tides. Some estimate 4-6 hrs later than Pt Atkinson or 2.5 – 4.5 hrs later than New Westminster depending on flow in Fraser..

No camping. Portable toilets, picnic shelter, tables. Large free day parking lot. Overflow parking along roadside. Pay overnight parking (in cash at on-site office 2018). Road access gate might be locked at night. Launch fees for trailer boats only.

Other Comments:

No launch fee for car top, portable boats, but be aware of overnight parking fee. Day use area. Hiking trails, Wildlife viewing. Boat rentals seasonally. Road on dyke beyond this point blocked by gate. Grant Narrows Regional Park managed by Metro Vancouver but not launch/parking /washroom.
Poor site operations, lack of maintenance 2020/2021 while MFLNORD attempt to find another facility operator – according to Mun, of Pitt Meadows.
