Lard Can Campsite

Quick Facts

Benches/Seating, Canoe/Kayak/Small Boat Launch, Picnic Table, Scenic View/Photo Spot, Toilet - Vault/Composting

This ground campsite is located on a small patch of slightly elevated ground. It is shaded by buttonwoods and surrounded by mangroves. Soil compaction at the site makes it very muddy after a rainstorm. The thick vegetation and shade can lead to high mosquito levels, especially in summer.

Access - Accessible by paddlers from the Hell’s Bay Trail. Motors are prohibited from the Hells Bay Trail Head to Lard Can. The trail winds through mangroves and is protected from the wind for most of the way. White numbered PVC poles mark the route.
