Landing Comments:

Steep gravel launch in river maintained by BC Parks. Advisable to paddle river at high tide. Low water impedes 3 NM channel, can give high surf at river mouth.

Camp Comments:

NB. Road closure for bridge replacement Sept 2018. Developed. San Josef Heritage Park Campground. Pit toilets, fire pits, picnic tables. Ph. 250-288-3682. Reported (7-2024) The commercial campground near the boat launch has been abandoned and doesn’t appear to be a safe place to leave a car anymore.

Other Comments:
