Landing Comments:

Special canoe/kayak dock. Need to be able to launch and land from a low dock. Alternatively use beach beside dock. Short carry and easy launch. Avoid stepping on flower/plant garden.

Camp Comments:

No camping.

Other Comments:

Paddlecraft access/launch opened January 2013, managed by Cowichan Valley Regional District. Approx 60 m carry to dock. Overnight parking along road. Built to encourage paddlers not to use Hecate Park foreshore or Cowichan Bay Boat Launch ramp located at the south side of the large parking lot .
