We love Plumpers cove, peaceful, natural, good hiking, clean, shade available. You can walk to Keats Landing in about 30 minutes.

We sailed into the harbour to have a picnic. Nice harbour, pleasant views out to the Sound. The park is adequate. Clean grounds, substandard washrooms.

Overnighted here on a sailing holiday. The facility has docking, mooring balls and free anchoring space. The outhouse is useable but does not inspire. The park trail is nice to stretch your legs.

Great spot to go camping in the Summer, though you need a boat to get there. Alternatively you can take the ferry, but you'll have a bit of a walk to get to the campground.

Plumper cove has always been a favourite, boat access only, get there early on long weekends in summer, great for a lunch stop if you are local.

Lovely place to stop on Keats Island. Watched eagles and walked on trails. Public dock for overnight stay that hold about six boats.

This is a great place to camp and moor or dock your boat. Keats Island has great walking trails. Facing west, you could catch one of the amazing BC sunsets.

Bbq smoke on the water from the campground. Plumper cove is an annual destination for us we take the boat there. No shore power and the dock spaces fill up early on long weekends.

Incredibly beautiful park is breathtaking with great facilities and feels remote but so close to Gibsons and the coast. Only an hours cruising from Vancouver. There is plenty if mirage on buoys and good dock space on a first come basis. Busy during August! We...More
