    Blackberry Point, Valdes Is, B.C.

    It was only an overnighter (WX report inspired me to sleep at home tonight!) but it's a very pretty place....and I did camp/sleep in my hammock, so I guess it qualifies!

    Blackberry Point is a popular camping destination for kayakers in my part of B.C. . The popularity falls off dramatically after Labour Day... I had the place to myself.

    Nice spot.. "I'll be back!"

    Thanks!
    It's not in a government park but on land leased by a forestry company.

    There's no (non-salt!) water there (bring your own isn't a big deal in a kayak, usually) but there is a (clean) composting toilet/'outhouse' back in the bush, supplied by the volunteers and supporters of the BC Marine Trails organization. Definitely a thumbs up!

    Never been there myself but hear about it thru westcoastpaddler.com . Looks like a great place when the weather is right and nobody else around. Thanks

    Thanks, Huff.

    Those (smallish) mountains are on Vancouver Island, south of Nanaimo- picture was taken facing NW. The mountains further north up the 'spine' of the Island are higher- a couple top 7000ft. LOTS of snowfall at higher elevations - by December they are usually reporting the snowpack at the Mt Washington ski area in metres.
