Lawn Point Provincial Park is located south of Quatsino Sound on the remote northwest coast of Vancouver Island.
The 584-hectare wilderness park comprises 512 hectares of upland and 72 hectares of foreshore, protecting unique geological and botanical features, as well as endangered old-growth forest, rocky shoreline and intertidal beach.
Kayaking, canoeing, fishing and wildlife viewing are popular activities in the sheltered waters of Neroutsos, Holberg and Rupert inlets as well as Quatsino Sound, which leads to the open Pacific.
Lawn Point has a primitive hiking route which can be accessed from an adjacent, logged off area just below the Side Bay Main. This route goes through the park and ends just south of the feature (point of land) marked on marine charts and topographic maps as “Lawn Point”. This route is NOT maintained by BC Parks.
This park does not have a boat launch, however a primitive boat launch is available at Side Bay, just east of the park. For larger boats, the nearest all-weather anchorage is located at Klaskino Anchorage, 5 miles to the west of Lawn Point. Anchoring may also be possible near two beaches west of Side Bay, just south of the park.
The park has no facilities, however random wilderness camping is allowed.
