Descanso Bay Regional Park is located on 34 acres of breathtaking oceanfront property on Gabriola Island. An undiscovered gem, the park is only a short walk from the ferry terminal and village center making it an ideal location for exploring Gabriola. The campground accommodates trucks and trailers, motor homes and tents and is easily accessed by foot, bike or kayak. The Park is also adjacent to Cox Community Park which has an established network of hiking trails through a majestic forest setting. With three private bays and a small boat launch area, spend the evening watching the sunset from the grassy meadow or in one of the a kayak rentals!
