Granite Falls

Granite Falls is a spectacular place to camp. The huge waterfall flows down and over rocks for 150 ft and makes a truly fantastic place to lay your head. Camp south of the falls and then head up to the Indian River estuary to check out where the river meets the ocean. If camping here is busy or full you can head to Berg’s Landing where the campsite is usually quieter.

Distance from Deep Cove:18 km
Paddling Time One Way: Fast: 3 hrs. Avg: 4 hr. Leisurely: 6 hr.
Suggested Route:Paddle the west shore to Croker Island, take the west channel between Croker and the Mainland, once you round the northern end of Croker you will see Granite Falls on the east shore.
  • Motorboat traffic.
  • Flow rates on the falls can vary so hiking on the falls can be dangerous
  • Bears are occasionally reported in the area
  • Afternoon warming on a sunny day creates strong headwinds for your return trip making it significantly longer than your outbound trip if you leave in the afternoon.
  • The outflow currents from Indian River can be felt here.
Features: Granite Falls is the best camping area on Indian Arm. Use the area south of the falls where there is a nice beach located. There is a dock and an outhouse north of the falls. This is a BC Park with glamorous outhouse facilities. Camping is first come first served.
Important Note:
  • For safety reasons, we ask that people do not climb above/beside the falls.
  • Camping is only allowed south of Granite Falls.
  • We would like to enforce that there are NO fires permitted at any campsite or on any island.
