    Quadra Island – Ashlar Creek

    Coordinates: 50°16.040N x 125°21.311W

    The beach at Ashlar Creek is fist to bowling ball size angular rock with some covered in barnacles.
    The campsite here is in the trees and well above the highest tide levels.
    Enough space for a couple of tents has been cleared out of the forest.
    There were lots of biting bugs on the night that I stayed here and I had to use my head net.
    Ashlar Creek creates some pleasant background noise as it tumbles over rocks.
    Bears could possibly visit this site so it is necessary to hang your food cache.
