Keats Island, BC
Keats Island is a scenic island accessible by foot-passenger ferry from
Langdale to Keats Landing. The island features several beaches and many
beautiful forested trails.
Most of the island is privately owned. At Keats Landing there is a community
of cottages, and Keats Camps, a Baptist summer camp. Further down the island
is Barnabas, another evangelical Christian camp. At the far end of the island
there is another cottage community called Eastbourne. Various houses and
farms are dotted throughout the rest of the island.
There is an excellent public marine campground at Plumper's Cove, which is
on the side of the island that faces Gibsons and Langdale. The park has a
wharf, sheltered moorage buoys, campsites, and picnic tables. Those who arrive
on the island by ferry will need to hike several kilometres through the woods
to reach the park. The park's pebble beach is great for swimming and
picnicking, and is a popular destination for those who rent kayaks in Gibsons.
Overnight visitors should be aware that there is no store on Keats Island, and
no garbage pick up. You'll need to bring all your own supplies with you, and
pack out your garbage. Please also be aware that fires are usually banned
in the summer months.
