Vancouver, British Columbia
June 21, 2004
We arrived Friday evening; Porpoise Bay has a separate area for cyclists to set up camp. According to the website, this area holds up to 40, but I didn’t see that many sites, the area that we were in, held five individual sites. Each campsite does not come with a private fire pit; instead you have access to a communal campfire (which is located on one of the campsites in your area). All campers in your section will have access to the campfire pit between 8am-10pm. Anyways, when we arrived, there was only one other couple in our section and they were there for one evening, so the remainder of the weekend we had the section to ourselves.
From where we set up the tent, we were within 300 yards to the beach, and about 100 or so yards to the washroom/shower facilities. I have to admit; this is the first time for me to camp in a provincial park, so the washroom and shower facilities were a definite treat! They were clean, with running hot water, oh and the showers, they were free. The beach was great with a lot of big cedar trees for shade, and the water was refreshing.
