Come camping in Lund / British Columbia
Lund in British Columbia / Canada
The picturesque fishing village of Lund, BC, is located on the west coast of Canada, 120km north of Vancouver, on the Sunshine Coast.
Lund is located at "Mile 0" of Highway 101, also known as the Pacific Coastal Highway, one of the world’s longest highways. The other end, a mere 15,202km away, is in the South American town of Quellon, Porto Monte, Chile.
For years the Coast Salish People enjoyed the area for its plentiful berries and shellfish. Lund was established in 1889 by two brothers, Charles and Fred Thulin, from Sweden. Since then it has become a thriving fishing village offering an abundance of fish, crabs, clams, and oysters.
Nowadays the population swells in the heat of the summer as visitors boat, drive or cycle here to enjoy Lund’s charm and to access Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park, the Copeland Islands, Okeover Inlet, and tropical Savary Island.
At the heart of Lund is the historic Lund Hotel boasting a restaurant and pub with ocean views. In the same building there is a laundromat, general store, post office, kayak rental shop, and local artisans’ gallery. There is a year-round marine fuel dock adjacent to the Lund government marina.
There is a beautiful little campground near the south side of Lund Harbour, as well as various lodges, cottages, and B&B's scattered throughout the area.
Transported through time and space from the Pacific tropics, Savary Island is hugged by sandy white beaches and warm water – only minutes away by water taxi which offers daily service year round.
Sarah Point, 12km north of Lund, is the start of the 180km-long Sunshine Coast Trail which ends in Saltery Bay. With several access points and tributaries along its route, this scenic trail offers easy day hikes or more challenging, multi-day excursions.
Outside the north end of the Lund Harbour, the pristine Copeland Islands Marine Park hugs the shoreline toward world-renowned Desolation Sound. Another route to Desolation Sound is along Okeover Inlet past the mariculture farms and through Malaspina Inlet. Both popular waterways are happily shared by sport fishers, pleasure boaters, kayakers and avid scuba divers who enjoy the excellent underwater visibility and abundant sea life.
Charter fishing and sightseeing boats offer easy access to the area’s ocean playground while kayakers intrigue curious lea lions, seals, and dolphins. Even orcas enjoy fishing in the area.
Lund is the perfect place to keep busy doing everything, or relax and enjoying doing absolutely nothing.
