Where is the boat launch located?
There is a local boat launch 2 minutes down the road at the very opposite end of the beach
(On the highway, drive over the channel and into the park on your right hand side)
Can I park my boat at Barefoot Resort?
you are permitted to park your boat in our main parking lot at a cost of $100.00 CAD (add this fee to your reservation when you book). We ask that you park respectfully leaving appropriate room for other guests. Our parking lot is a first come first serve basis, that said it is a large lot with lots of room.
Beach access by boat?
You are able to pull your boat up onto the shore of our beach at the far left hand side (near the off-leash dog area) away from the roped off swimming area in the water. We insist you use extreme caution and a very slow no-wake pace when pulling up as there are many families who use our beach that have young children.
