    Does anyone know if camping is still allowed on Carlos Island. BCMT has no mention and I see that Saturnina is designated as day use only.

    Hi Maureen:

    No camping in the Flat Tops, unfortunately.

    I checked the Carlos I info a few years ago:

    Carlos Island
    Layer: Planning Layer
    Site Type: Deleted Site
    Coordinates: 49.15923, -123.69687
    Land Tenure: Private
    Tent Sites: n/a
    Landing Comments  Easy on sand beach.

    Camp Comments   semi exposed. Grassy area at top of island.

    Other Comments Flat Top Islands. View.

    BC Parks Fdn bought Saturnina a couple of years back but want no camping – however that could change although i understand that BC Parks do not want to make it a park either, so it likely will end up in some nature conservancy status.

    Saturnina Island
    Layer: Day Use
    Site Type: Day Use
    Coordinates: 49.14643, -123.67707
    Land Tenure: Non profit society, public foreshore

    Landing Comments Moderate on rock shelf. Exposed to NW, SE. Easier on sand, gravel beach at high water.

    Camp Comments Small undeveloped, semi-exposed rocky island.

    Other Comments Seal colony nearby. Previously private, bought by BC Parks Foundation approx 2021. Planned use/status unknown.
