Beach Camp Town Park

Beach Camp Town Park is in the community of Port Renfrew and lies in the Juan De Fuca Electoral Area and is part of the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This park hosts a long sandy beach with several shallow tidal bars. This sandy beach lies along the south shore of Port San Juan Bay. Several long and large logs lie on this beach which is bordered by homes and cliffs. The San Juan River flows in to the sea near this park. The sea birds are abundant with gulls, eagles, and herons. If you are in luck you may see river otters, mink and seals. A wooden staircase and crushed gravel foot path links the lower Beach Camp Park trail with Parkinson Road. The forest of cedar, hemlock and firs have small shrubs and fern in the understory. The park trail along Parkinson Road has a split cedar fence. This is a good place to walk in your back yard.
