Landing Comments:

Large moderate gradient shell beach W of point suited to most water levels. N aspect. Also choice of 2 closer easy shell beaches at high water only. Rock shelf at low water. Ship wash likely from frequent ferries.

Camp Comments:

Tent pads in trees. Composting toilet. Picnic tables. Fee charged year-round. Reservable mid May – Sept. No fires, including below high tide mark. Sensitive areas have been damaged by trampling, so avoid overflow camping. Hammock use restricted to trees with durable bark. Large parties should use Princess Bay instead. See camping

Other Comments:

View. Attractive. Wildlife viewing. Extensive walking trails. Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.

    If this site is full, camp operators will tolerate overflow onto the grassy areas.
