    Worth to set your tent on the kitchen upper level- its the most beautiful view point.
    Washrooms: run out of Wood dust.
    Life: chipmunks, deers and wasps. Orcas and humpbacks. Oysters catchers , seals, herons and eagles

    Likely Cougar sighting on islet just to south – August 19th, 2023 – 5:15am. Fantastic alternative camping on this islet if site is full. Lots of Humpback in area, 8 sightings in 3 days.

    Glen Jackson posted: 2022 September: From nearby dock, there is fantastic swimming/rocks to dive off of in very warm water at lake via a quick hike past waterfall.

    Campsite itself unfortunately has seen quite a few people not practicing leave no trace, and there are multiple 3-ply white lilies blossoming in the woods around camp.
    Heavier winds from the Northwest can funnel down this inlet and will produce substantial waves.

    We now have a composting or mouldering toilet on site. Alder shavings are currently in the structure. Site cleaned up on July 5, 2022 as part of BCMT annual inspection.
