Camping during Hesquiaht Days is a wonderful way to connect with nature, spend time with loved ones, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. To ensure everyone has a pleasant experience, please follow these guidelines: 

  • Respect Hesquiaht Staff: They are here to make your experience enjoyable. Be patient during busy arrival and departure times. 
  • Quiet Hours: Ask about designated quiet hours. Keep noise levels down, especially late at night and early in the morning.
