We really enjoyed camping here! Terraced ground with hammock and chairs at each site, great views of the Sounds and hot solar camping showers. We found lots of green mussels at the beach and had a great dinner. This is the place to camp at the Queen Charlotte walk!!!

The most visually impressive camp site I have stayed at. The tent sites are all on terraced ground allowing for amazing views and great facilities for campers. The cleanest drop toilet ever!
