Toquaht Nation opened Secret Beach Campground and Kayak Launch in British Columbia this week, according to Saanich News.

General manager Noah Plonka says that for the most part, they are ready to welcome guests back to Toquaht lands in western Barkley Sound after being closed for over a year.

“I think it’s a long time coming. We’re definitely ready. We’ve been preparing for it for a long time and Toquaht supports it,” he said.

Known as the gateway to the Broken Group Islands, Secret Beach Campground features 71 campsites, 48 moorage slips, two boat launches and one kayak launch. It is located about a 45-minute drive from Ucluelet, and a portion of the journey includes driving the well-maintained Toquaht Bay gravel road. Boating there is also an option.
