Landing Comments:

Easy on public concrete boat ramp or adjacent sand beach.

Camp Comments:

No camping. Portable toilet.

Other Comments:

At E end of Nelson Road off Barnes Road. Aka Cedar Boat Ramp. Used as trailer, cartop boat launch. Limited day only parking so recommended for day use only. Please load/unload quickly at 2 vehicle space on S side of ramp, instead on ramp itself. Nanaimo Regional District leases community ramp as park. Several parking tickets have been given out by the police (2019). Paddlers have been blocking the ramp for lengthy periods of time. Please respect this community.
