Mitlenatch Island Nature Park is located east of Black Creek in the Strait of Georgia, off central Vancouver Island. The closest communities are Comox, Courtenay, Lund, Powell River and Campbell River. The park is accessible by boat, only. Boaters can reference marine chart #3513 and #3538 for more information about this area.

The only access to the park is from Northwest Bay or Camp Bay. No boats are to land along the rocky shorelines on either side of both Camp and Northwest Bays or at any point around the island. Oystercatchers and Pigeon Guillemots nest just above the high tideline. Boaters should enter into the middle of either bay to minimize wildlife disturbance and are responsible for their own boat and passengers.
