Given the border is closed this question pertains only to Canada at this point.
Looking for anchorages/marinas that have adjacent camping spots. I can think of Montague which has a Provincial campground, same for Pirates Cove. Port Browning on Pender has a private campground. I believe that Wallace Island has a couple of tent sites near the old building in Conover Cove. The ones on the north end of the island are too far from the anchorage.
Are there other similar locations anyone can think of, preferably in the Gulf Islands. I know there are some in Desolation but that’s a little far to go.
Not sure if you are looking for road access campgrounds or the more primitive marine trail campsite. Check out this map for the many campsites available. They are everywhere. https://www.bcmarinetrails.org/bc-map
I know its not possible now, but when some normalcy comes to the world, I am wondering if most places the rallies are held, is there either camping in a motorhome or/and accommodations fairly close? Would enjoy joining the group at some of the cruises destinations.
Hi Gerry, Excellent idea. LaConner was perfect a couple years ago with the campground right beside the marina. It would be great to come up with a list of marinas that had campgrounds close by to aid in our selection of future Cruise locations. Maybe we can include that information in the posts for each event.
As regular events, MacRendezvous on Bowen Island has no camping but offers cottages for rent. I’m not sure what kind of camping might exist close to Blaine for our regatta. Sucia raft up has a campground but it is not vehicle accessible.
This year’s events (if they happen) include Ganges and Bellingham and I’m not sure how close camping might be found.
I know theres an RV park at the Port of Anacortes, just to the north.
We stayed in the LaConner RV park last year, it was ok.

We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
