Portland Island, BC View Map
Operating Season:  May 15 - September 30 Number of Sites: 6

Portland Island can only be accessed via boat. Portland Island features cliffs, protected coves and sand beaches. The island was once the site of a First Nations village, but now the shell midden beaches encircling the island are the most visible reminder of their presence. Do not disturb midden sites. During the summer months, the Royal Victoria Yacht Club provides information to boaters at a float in Princess Bay, through the park's Marine Host program. Portland Island features three backcountry campgrounds linked by a 6.5km hiking trail that follows the coast of the entire island. Backcountry campgrounds are accessible year round but are not regularly maintained from October 1 – May 14. Visitors may use them at their own risk. Shell Beach Campground: 6 unserviced campsites Pit toilets No Potable Water Permanent fire ban (including below high tide mark)
