All the campsites along the Nootka Trail are lovely, but our favourite is on the powdery sands at Calvin Falls. We keep our coastal camps tidy. Once the gear is dry, the food is hung, and the sun starts to set, we stow everything into our packs and place them in the tent vestibule. Afterwards, we relax on the huge beach logs, or enjoy an evening walk in the fading light.
