Unnamed Road, Nanaimo, British Columbia





Walk-in campsites on Newcastle Island which offer not just stunning vistas and quiet reflection, but also family-friendly amenities like a large day-use area with playground and horseshoe pits, nearby food concession, fresh water and hot showers. Access by pedestrian only ferry. Bikes permitted. The 18 walk-in campsites are located in a quiet forested area a mere 5-minute walk from the docks. Several of the sites are next to the ocean. Five group campsites are also available that can accommodate up to 50 guests. Potable water is available along with flush and pit toilets, hot showers, and food lockers to protect your rations from local raccoons! With no cars allowed on the island, the quiet is serene, with nothing but the sound of the ocean, birds and wind in the trees. And with no bears or cougars on the island, there is little worry of any alarming wildlife encounters. Sites are available on a first-come first-served basis, but reservations are highly recommended. Reservations can be made through the BC Parks online reservation system. Your four-legged hiking friend is welcome on Saysutshun, but needs to be on leash at all times.
