Description

It’s a 20-30 min drive off HWY 19 down Kipala Main FSR **only 5 mins on FSR if you get on it off hwy 19, coming from the south** and you hit the large bridge going over the Nimpkish river. it’s on the left. A small narrow road leading to the shoreline of where the river meets the lake. It’s absolutely beautiful. The lake is quite windy so you get to hear the lake waves all night :) quiet and desolate, no-one around and you actually get **some** cell reception!

great spot, easy FSR to get in. some locals on the beach when I arrived but had the place to myself overnight and the next day

I parked up top in a large area next to road just past the bridge. had a view of the lake and just a short walk down. great for a morningswim. I didn't drive down to the beach in my heavy 2wd van but really didn't look that bad. any decent 4wd vehicle shouldn't have a problem.

Quiet. Easy to get in from south end. We drive across bridge w no problems to see the river beach, more scenic, but the beach camping would have been a bit ‘iffy’ for us. We were just there for a sleep so other side was fine.

We came here with two old 4x4 sprinters and took the risk to drive down to the beach. The mud itself wasn’t the only problem, it’s a mix between the mudhole, a steep slope right afterwards on the left and a huge rock on the right. After the slope and the rock the road makes a bend to the right. We build a „bridge“ over the mud and barely made it around the rock. The truck camper after us hit the rock, so I wouldn’t recommend it for longer vehicles. I’ll upload some pictures of the bridge and the access road. Hope that helps you guys

lovely camping spot! we just pulled up on the main road rather than risk the dodgey mud road down to beach, it's only about a 100m walk anyway.

Beautiful place to pull over for the night. Someone wrote that it's 20 - 30 minutes off hwy 19, but it we timed it and it only took us 5 minutes. The little access road to the beach is flooded and incredibly muddy. I wouldn't recommend driving down to the beach unless you're confident and have a good vehicle for this. There is lots of room to pull over on the side of the road for the night, so it isn't necessary to drive right onto the beach. It's easy (and super close) to walk down to the beach from the road, and you cne lope your feet clean by going around the mud. We had a lovely camp fire on the beach with stunning views down the lake, otters frolicking in the water and bald eagles flying over head. We didn't see another soul all night! Unfortunately, some previous campers messed up the beach by driving on it and there was glass and litter left behind. We tried to clean it a bit. We hope you will also leave this site better than how you find it. Enjoy! :-)

The logging road to get there is full of pothole and you have to take a little muddy trail to get on the beach. We broke our truck there. Would'nt recommend. The towing usually don't come into logging roads, but we were lucky. It sure is a nice place, but risky.
