Quatse Campground

This campground is located on the banks of the Quatse River, a five minute drive from downtown Port Hardy and a 10 minute drive to the BC Ferries terminal. The campground is part of a richly forested regional park containing trees hundreds of years old, with wild flora and fauna found in old growth forests. There’s a trail right beside it called the Quatse Trail Loop which is 2.5 km. If you’re wanting seclusion, a nice river to swim in and a trail near the campground, Quatse Campground is what you’re looking for!


Port Hardy RV Resort & Log Cabins

5. Walk the Sea Wall. The Seawall is a 0.2 km spans from Government Wharf to Tsulquate Park. In the evening the wall is illuminated by blue light.


4. Grab a coffee or a snack at one of our local eateries.  After work or even on lunch break we love to order our favourite sandwich, sit down and read a book.


3. Watch the sunset and roast some marshmallows at Storey’s Beach, great for the kids to play or to explore yourself.


2. Hike the Fort Rupert Commuter Trail. This trail consists of 4 km of boardwalk and gravel. Once you complete the trail you can relax at our beautiful Storey’s Beach.

1. Enjoy the day at a Lake. We love sitting down and relaxing by a lake. Beaver Lake is just off the turnoff to Port Alice and has a cute little dock. The Beaver Lake Forest Trail will take you about 45 minutes around the lake and is super simple. If you’re looking for a campsite by the lake then Alice Lake or Georgie Lake is your friend.
