Landing Comments:

2 pebble beaches of moderate gradient with 1 m high bank. Beaches sit between small rock outcrops. NW aspect. Currents, vessel traffic.

Camp Comments:

Dispersed camping understood to be permitted. Moderately level sites in attractive open forest, some on old roadbed, about 20 m above either of pebble beaches. Minor brushing likely required. No fires. Precise location might vary depending on site chosen.

Other Comments:

Water at nearby seasonal creek. View. Hiking trail located 200 m to SE connects with main park trail #20 near junction with #23. Hydro right of way trail not maintained entirely. See: Burgoyne Bay Provincial Park
