Secret Beach Campground opens

The Toquaht Nation has announced the details on their new campground.

In 2013, the Toquaht Marina and Campground, which included a public boat launch, was closed due to contamination issues.

Since that time, the Toquaht Nation has worked very intensively, with some support from the Province, to get a new campground and kayak launch built, said Sarah Robinson, director of operations for the Toquaht. The new Secret Beach Campground and Kayak Launch opened May 16.

“Unfortunately, the boat launch at the old campground remains closed for now, although there is a very small glimmer of hope that we may be able to find a solution sooner rather than later,” Robinson said. An official ribbon cutting/grand opening of the Secret Beach Campground will be held July 12.
