    There are a couple of campgrounds that provide you access to Nitinat Lake area...

    There is a First Nations Campground close to the Lake....use the road to Carmanah from Youbou...follow the signs....you have to watch closely sometimes...but when you arrive at Nitinat you cant help but find the community...camping is offered as well as a gasoline station and a small store.

    This is NOT how to set up a tent... : o ]

    The Carmanah Valley has made the News for many Years as a place of protest against Logging.
    It is very beautiful , and rather spooky at times. If you decide to hike around in the Woods, JUST DON"T DO IT ALONE!! because it can be very DANGEROUS! Inexperienced people should STAY on posted TRAILS, and study up before they get TOO carried away.

    Ha.....I cant warn you enough about having a 4x4 to use for transport to and from as well as around the area...

    LOGGING ROADS ARE ROUGH....and some are not maintained as well as others...

    4x4 Dodge on backroads of Vancouver Island !!!

    If you're hiking through backcountry ALWAY be aware that we are encroaching on natural habitat of Bear,Cougars,and other animals.

    ALWAYS make plenty of NOISE when hiking wilderness areas.....wear a bell......or find a stick and evry few yards wack it against something...to make NOISE!!

    YOU do not want to surprise ANY of these animals....always best to let them know that you are in the area...

    If you are camping in country like this....bring rope to hang your food[in a pack] off a limb of a tree...and keep your campsite free and clear of ANY scent of food or garbage!!

    Read more about wilderness camping before you decide to do this if you are NOT experienced.

    ALWAYS pay heed to signs that Ministry of natural Resources post when an animal such as bear or cougar are known in the area.

    Any FREEE Foood around??
