Saysutshun, Newcastle Island, is located  just minutes away from the bustling urban center of Nanaimo. Alongside the strong First Nations presence and culture on the island, it is also home to many rich histories which include coal mining, a sandstone quarry, and herring salteries, all of which make Newcastle Island a must-see ecotourism destination.

Visitors can take a walk through history on the 22km trail system, stop by Q’uluc’tun Bistro for a snack, bike, kayak, or escape and spend a night or two in seclusion at one of the island’s campsites. The Historic Pavilion is also a great place for hosting special events.


Campgrounds

Camp under the stars in one of the 18 individual campsites or 5 group campsites. Each individual campsite has a burn pit, a picnic table, and a tent pad. Firewood is available from the park staff for $8 a bundle. Camping is only permitted within the authorized camping sites.
