Camping/Overnight Gear Guidelines
What You Need to Camp in this National Park
Winter / Spring
Between the months of December through May, ocean conditions may prevent Island Packers from picking you up at your scheduled time. Please come prepared with extra food in case we are unable to pick you up because of adverse weather conditions. On the day of your island departure please speak with a ranger or check the bulletin board for the most up-to-date information regarding island pick-up times. Island Packers may come earlier, (as much as a day earlier) than scheduled for camper pick up, so please check before you leave the campground area. You may miss the boat if you are unaware of the schedule change.
