Porteau Cove is a full campground located about a forty five minute drive from downtown Vancouver. Perched on the edge of Howe Sound- on the most southerly fjord in North America Porteau Cove affords spectacular views above and below water- this is also a super popular scuba diving location. Water side camp sites as well as two Olympic legacy cabins provide options for both the outdoors enthusiast and the outdoor observer!
As a family with young kids this is quickly becoming a favourite stop to get out and stretch our legs, explore and of course use the bathrooms! Great picnic tables as well as free parking make this the perfect day trip if a longer camp out is not in your plans. I find it amazing that something so peaceful exists so close to such a big city- this is the perfect introductory campground for new campers- get outside people!
