The campground at the Kaikash Creek Rec Site is a remote campground. It is only accessible by water. It is extensively used by kayakers. there is fresh water here and quite a few campsites all located just up from one of the longest beaches in the area. It has composting toilets, picnic tables and privacy. The beach is almost a km long and is located 11 km south of Telegraph Cove and only 6 km north of Robson Bight Ecological Reserve boundary.

This is a premier site for viewing sea live, i have seen humpback whales feeding just off shore and the killer whales will hunt along the kelp forests that run all along the beach. The Kaikash Rec Site is a great location for a base camp. From here you can go out every day and see new territory as you search for humpback whales, killer whales, dall’s porpoise’s, dolphins, sea-lions and seals. Its pretty awesome to see these beautiful animals in their natural environments. When you are here, keep yours open, you could see plenty of eagles, ravens, mink and squirrels along with the other life here.

You can look for the smaller sea creatures at low tide as you wander along this wonderful beach, just look into the small tidal pools and be amazed at its small wonders. There is a very real chance to view black bears feeding along the tide line here as well as seeing black tail deer especially where the creek flows into Broughton straight.

Along the beach are other private campsites where tour companies bring their customers. These sites are well built, unobtrusive and generally add a mix of people you might meet and pleasantly chat with as you wander along the beach.

The creek itself is a nice little creek that is fairly easy to walk up and explore, there are numerous pools and small rapids along this little creek all surrounded by some incredible forest settings. The rec site is maintained by the Namgi’s people.
