Kitty Coleman is a conveniently located Marine Park for any kayaker paddling the east coast of Vancouver Island.
It is 16 miles (25.6km) north of Sandy Island, 9 miles (14.4km) south of Kuhushan Point and 21 miles (33.6km) south of the Thunderbird Campground in Campbell River.
There is a convenient spot to camp by a concrete boat ramp that enters a small creek.
This creek can be used to land out of waves at mid to high tide levels.
The beach here is medium sized rocks that could create a problem if landing in waves.
Campsites may be empty but reserved by others so kayakers should check in with the campground host before setting up. I visited here on a weekday and it was fairly empty. It may be filled with RV’rs on a busy summer weekend.
There is a small fee ($13 in 2012) to camp here that the campground host will collect in cash.
Pavilions, pit toilets, picnic tables and water are available.
