    De Courcy Island - Pirates Cove Marine Park

    I visited this site on May 16, 2012
    Coordinates: 49°5.64N x 123°43.564W

    The beach here is sand and provides easy landing and launching at all tide levels.
    Campsites are up a steep slope in a wooded area.
    Tent platforms provide nice places to camp.
    A water pump and composting toilet are a short walk from the camping area.
    A small camping fee can be paid at a kiosk near the water pump.

    This was the third of 34 Canadian campsites on my 2012 Inside Passage kayaking trip.
