Gorge Harbour Marina Resort Facilities!
There are many ways to get to Gorge Harbour Marina Resort, whether its by camper to spend the week in a full serviced site, or maybe you’ve come over on foot to take the kids on their first tenting trip. You might have come in by sail or power boat and are spending sometime on the docks. Maybe you’ve brought over friends and rented the lodge or cottage. Its good to know that there are alot of things to do while you are here besides going for a swim and reading that book in the shade of an old apple tree that you ve been trying to finish for the last month.
At low tides the harbour is a great place to explore tidal pools along the shoreline. Gorge Harbour Marina Resort offers kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and power boats to take that exploration to a different level. Close by are well marked trails to hike through old second growth forests. Cortes Island offers some of the best warm water swimming on the West Coast of North America. Hague Lake (a 10 minute boat ride plus 10 minute walk from the Gorge) offers some of the most amazing fresh water swimming anywhere. Smelt Bay, at the southern tip of the island offers amazing beaches at low tides and Marina Island just out from the Gorge Harbour is a place everyone should watch the sunset at least once in their life.
Volleyball & Horseshoe Pit
There is a full size regulation volleyball court located by the pool. Put together a team and challenge the locals to a game. Horseshoe pits are located by the kids playground just behind the volleyball court.
BBQ’s & Gazebo
There are two BBQ’S located on a grassy area on the waters edge for all guests to use. Theres a nice fire ring to relax and sit around at the end of the night. The campground offers a gazebo with a wood buring stove for those chillier evening.
Kids Movie Night
Every Tuesday night there is a kids movie shown in Gorge Hall, next to the volleyball court. It is free, fun and can give mom and dad some time alone.
Four nights a week we offer live music down on the waterfront for everyone’s enjoyment. Sit on your boat and enjoy it, or even better, grab a blanket and find a spot on the grassy hill. Bring your favorite beverages and just enjoy how life is meant to really be.
Fresh Cortes Island Oysters
Every Saturday afternoon, local oystermen and women come down and put on a tasting at the fireplace deck. Not only do you get to discover why Cortes Oysters are so renowned by eating them, but you’ll learn how they are grown as well.
