    Looks like a nice park, but also very windy, right? That looks like the highway up to Whistler, which would be quite a drive for those of us coming up from Seattle.

    I've tried to come up with a closer park, with little success. I have a few ninja spots but we would never get away with more than two or three hammocks.

    Both are great ideas, or even squamish valley/elaho valley.

    Cultis is a bit windy sometimes but there are tones of campsites that are up in the trees out of the wind. Porteau cove is only 20-30 minutes out of North van and north van is only a bridge away from Vancouver. Really no more than an hour and a half from the boarder to either one. Depending on the crossing you take.

    I live in North Van, and drive near/past Porteau fairly regularly. I also go to Bellingham and Seattle on occasion...

    From my place:
    Porteau is about 45 min
    Bellingham is a little over an hour - If the border is moving quickly.

    Porteau is an easy park to find and has lots of trees.
    (I've never been camping there, but have been diving there a lot. )

    I'm not sure how well the trees are arranged at the sites for hammockers though.

    The only negatives of Porteau are: *That I can think of
    - Road noise
    - It is literally beside active railroad tracks (expect 1 or 2 trains a night)
    - popular in good weather (due to proximity to City)


    I'd be interested in getting out. Depends on when, obviously
    - I work every other Saturday night.
