Vancouver Island – Little Bear Bay Coordinates: 50°20.301N x 125°57.695W Little Bear Bay is a public camping area that can be reached by car. The beach is sand and small rounded rocks at all tide levels. There are numerous tent sites above the highest tides. The ground is hard packed gravel so tent stakes will not work here. All of the sites offer great views of Johnstone Strait. Picnic tables, pit toilet, and water are available. I spotted Bald Eagles, Canadian Geese, and deer while camped here.
