Parking is limited and depending on how many attend we may have
to have folks park at their sites, which limits how many can camp,
but with 63 people attending last year, we had no troubles. We can

that lived in Nanaimo did not camp as they were very close by, and
the Bunk house made it easier still.

diligent about picking up after them. The creek is off limits.
