There is a cold water hand pump located in the park at the north end of the campground at the edge of the parking lot.
Boat launch
Although this park does not have a boat launch, there is a boat launch immediately adjacent to the park. Please note that the boat launch is only recommended for use during high tides and with 4 wheel drive vehicles. The habour authority has built a new parking area which is 50 metres from the park and very convenient for boaters.
Campfires are permitted in the designated fire rings at each campsite. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use communal fire rings. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Ocean swimming is available. The beach is very rocky with no sand. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
There are paddling, canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park. This park is often used by kayakers as a jumping point to access Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
