Rendezvous Island South Provincial Park is part of the BC Marine Trail Association network – a series of campsites, resting areas and safe havens designed and cared for by recreational boaters and paddlers. Once connected, this marine trail will extend from Vancouver to Prince Rupert and down into Puget Sound.
This undeveloped pristine wilderness park is a west coast paradise in the heart of the Discovery Islands.
