If you wish to attend here is what you need to do:

1. RSVP yes to this meetup
2. Let us know if you need a ride by stating it in the comment section and we will arrange a ride for you, or let you know how you can get there on transit
3. Bring your gear (swim suit, comfortable shoes for the hike, a towel and something to sit on....don't forget sunscreen!)
4. Bring cards, board games and or any other items you have that we can use for group entertainment. Note: Dogs are allowed, however will need to be kept on leash. I will be bringing my Princess :)

Note: there is no food stands available at this beach so make sure to bring food OR let us know and we can supply it. If we end up supplying the food 10$ will be required from everyone attending. If you wish to have us supply the food/beverages please let us know in advance.

Our usual BBQ meals include:
Quinoa Salad
Beef Burgers
Hot Dogs
Chicken wings

Hope you can make it


The meetup will be held at BUNZTEN LAKE.

We will begin the day at 830 am with a hike to north beach , it can take up to 1.5 hours. We will relax at north beach and at 1 pm will begin to head back down to south beach, can take up to 1.5 hours. Please make sure to bring a light bag with water, snacks, sandwich, towel and or a blanket for this part of the hike.

Once we head back down to south beach we will unload the rest of our cargo and take a spot somewhere in the park for a BBQ.

If you are renting a canoe, please schedule your rental for 4pm. You have to do the paper work outside of the park so make sure you do that before you enter as it is a long walk back (They can be reached at: (604)[masked]). The canoes are ready for use on the beach front at south beach.

We will be waiting for everyone at the tip of P3. I will be wearing a bright pink shirt and I will hold up a sign saying YCG.

Please come early to get a spot in the parking lot, the gate closes once parking lot is full and they will not allow you in to even unload. It is along walk from the entrance to the park it self. So come early and to join us in the hike.

NOTE: there will be minimal cell reception at this park, but encase it works my number is[masked] or you may reach Stephen @[masked]

Cant wait!

    Hi guys, so obviously due to the heavy rain we are rescheduling this event to august 9th. We decided to come and hike any way but it's way to muddy and slippery. Please update your rsvp for the new scheduled date.

    Sorry guys we have to bow out. Bunzten lake is very nice but I was going to come to the event by sailboat (as we would have been out sailing that weekend) when this was at Belcarra. With the location change we can't make it there as there is no way to get there by water way. Hope you all have fun!

    P.S. For you folks that have never been you can fish for trout from the dock or from a boat but you will need to get a
    Freshwater Fishing Licence ($10 1day, $36 year round)­

    Another advantage to Cates park is you can crab and fish. Buntzen is nice too but only has stocked trout. We went recently and didn't have any luck with the fish.... Where as Cates park has yet to fail me for Crab (at least 2 keepers)

    Nadia don't feel too bad things change all the time. Old say Cates park. It is literally across the water from Barnet. Had parking near the kayak rentals area at the east end of the park. I was there 2 weeks ago and the kayaks are already on the beach ready to be used.

    Hi guys, I feel like such a fool. I always get the name of the parks mixed up :( There are canoe rentals at Buntzen lake only. The small place that rented kayaks at Belcarra lake is no longer in business..... so the question is: do we go to Belcarra as planned or do we go to Bunzten instead???
    If we go to Bunzten, along with a picnic, we canhave a nice hike, and those wishing to rent a canoe can continue with their plans as well. Note: the place that rents the canoe is outside of the park by the gate entrance. So if you are planning on canoeing I'd suggest you book in advance and get the paper work done before you enter the beach. They can be reached at: (604)[masked]
