A little more about camping vs day tripping to Gerald I for ivy removal. There is limited camping available on the island and the logistics of this will be worked out as people sign-up with the intent to make it work well for everyone interested. It looks as though there may be more campers than spots but it is too soon to know. There are no facilities on Gerald.
Another option is to day trip. There is no limit to the number of day trippers! One possibility is to day trip and camp at Rathtrevor Beach (15′ drive). This has a number of advantages including a shower! Also, Parksville has lots of tourist accommodation with off season rates.
I’m happy to help coordinate. Please post to the forum or let me know if you are interested in joining.
