Landing Comments:

Awkward on rock, pebble, some sand, in sheltered cove. The public dock is high so difficult for kayakers to moor and unload or launch kayaks . Mud at low water. Alternate landing on E side of island N48D 56.283M , W123D 32.650M

Camp Comments:

Numbered site each with a picnic table plus possible additional random sites in open grass field. Less suited for hammocks. Pit, vault toilets. No fires permitted. Food cache. Dining shelter. Camping fees apply year-round. May pre-pay permit via Internet, but no reservable sites. Fee $5.00 per person per night (2019) via BC Parks Backcountry Registration System .

Other Comments:

Dock, busy anchorage. Historic buildings. Bring water – closest availability Montague Harbour Provincial Park, Dionisio Point Provincial Park. Hiking trails. Known locally as Honeymoon Bay. Mostly used by boaters who moor in cove. See Wallace Island Marine Provincial Park
