The steep, rocky shoreline of South Texada Park makes access by boat very difficult.
Anderson Bay Provincial Park is a separate parcel located on South Texada’s eastern shore. It provides well-protected anchorage from all sides except the southeast. The small island and peninsula are included in the park, but the head of the bay is private land.
Black-tailed deer, birds and intertidal life can all be found in the park.
