The Ditidaht Nation Community, Windsurf Park and Caycuse River Campgrounds will open 50% of its sites on a priority basis to British Columbia residents for overnight camping for the 2021 season. Our reservation system is now open with the camping season running May 25 - September 30, 2021. No walk-ins will be permitted and all COVID protocols will be in place. On April 19, B.C. Premier John Horgan announced sweeping new travel restrictions that prohibit people from travelling outside their health authority to stop the spread of COVID-19. Our Nitinaht Lake campsites will be following these provincial rules and will not accept bookings for May 21 to June 15 to any persons living outside of the Vancouver Island health authority region. These dates may be extended if provincially ordered. For those who have booked please email [email protected] to cancel your booking and request a refund.

Nitinaht Lake Campground (Formerly Forest Service)

In 2006, the Ditidaht People took over the operations of the world renowned Windsurf Nitinaht Lake Campground. This place is renowned for its untouched beauty, thermal winds, trails and access to both Nitinaht Lake and the Caycuse River.

Each year it fills up fast – with kite surfers and windsurfers from all over the world journeying to their mecca, as well as nature lovers and West Coast Trail hikers. Book your campsite early, and make sure to read our tips for getting here and ‘leave no trace’ camping.

The 2019 expansion plans for the campsite and services have commenced with plans for 120 tent sites and 12 RV sites. The Nitinaht Lake Campground sits on 150 hectares, following the shores of Nitinaht Lake and the winding Caycuse River.
