This campground is located in Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. To get there, you must take a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons (where the Bruno Gerussi TV show “The Beachcombers” was shot). From there, drive about 30 mins north to Sechelt. Porpoise Bay Provincial Park on the Sunshine Coast offers many opportunities for coastal fun and is a favorite family park.

Best Sites or Attractions Here

A second-growth forest, open grassy areas, and sandy beaches characterize this park. The sites are generously spaced out, and there is a sand beach for swimming (though no dogs are allowed on the beach or in the picnic areas). You can enjoy canoeing, cycling, fishing, hiking, and swimming in Porpoise Bay Provincial Park.

Campground Amenities

Fire pits, drinking water, and picnic areas are available. The washrooms have lots of hot water in the showers. The closest sani-dump is at Roberts Bay Campground, which is slightly inconvenient but worth the effort!
