Wilderness, whales and trails
Bere Point Regional Park is owned by the Regional District of Mount Waddington and is located six kilometers from downtown Sointula. Signs will direct you from the ferry terminal. There are 30 campsites and a group tenting site nestled in the trees with the beach a stones throw away. You will see views of the Queen Charlotte Strait and the nearby snow-capped coastal mountains and occasionally you might see orca whales swimming by and maybe rubbing on the rocks at Bere Point. Catch the action from the whale watching platform. Bere Point is also the start of the Beautiful Bay Trail.
There are two free picnic day use areas at Bere Point for public use. Outhouses are on-site but there is no potable running water, sewer or electrical service available at Bere Point campground. Firewood may be available from on-site vendors while stocks last. From time to time there may be a fire ban imposed by Ministry of Forests, please be cautious and obey fire restrictions.
“ The Beautiful Bay Trail Can be accessed from the second day use parking area.”

The quaint Finnish Village of Sointula has plenty to offer: local arts and crafts, watercolors, homemade soaps, restaurants, library, moorage, the Co-op, dry goods, gas bar, Museum and ATM. Finnish settlers came to the island in the early 1900's naming the settlement "Sointula" which in Finnish means “harmony” and reflected the conscious decision of the homesteaders to live with such ideas as gender equality and contributions to community.
Bere Point is a very popular site during the summer and reservations are strongly recommended in advance especially for long weekends. An attendant is on-site during the summer season. Reservations can be made online at berepoint.letscamp.ca. Please see the Events Calendar for reservation opening date.
