Simson Park


Marine-accessible camping

Rustic, marine-accessible camping is available at this park at Farm Bay and Pebbly Beach. No facilities provided.


There are no developed hiking trails; however, there are old skidder roads that criss cross the park. Care must be taken as these are not marked. Please Respect Private Property.


Ocean swimming available. The beaches are rocky, gravel and cobbles with barnacles. All the bays have a south, southeast exposure and are subject to Small Craft Warnings. Take care as there is little protection from the winds and waves. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.


There is some good canoeing and kayaking when weather permits. Paddlers can access paddle-in sites. There are rentals available at Halfmoon Bay and Sechelt. Please respect private property.
