Landing Comments:

Easy on broad low gradient beach with 3% slope on sand, gravel, some small rocks. Protected E aspect. Prominent large boulder on shore. Some drift logs. Access on short trail from parking lot. Former alternative launch off public float on N side within ferry dock, next to Gambier, Keats passenger ferry dock, inaccessible (2022) to long objects due to deliberately-placed barriers, fencing, also gated, locked at night.

Camp Comments:

No camping permitted. Toilets at terminal, trailhead.

Other Comments:

Terminal reconstruction planned. Public plaza planned next to beach to S of new building. Unknown if beach access, launch is to be included. Popular beach access location following removal of security fence from BC Ferries bordering property.
