The dock is open but the uplands are closed. You cannot walk around the grounds or up to the lake. There is no caretaker this year. The owner of Butedale has brought in excavation equipment and clean up has started. Future plans for development and a timeline are not in place at this time.
- Prince Rupert
The Cow Bay Marina is getting very busy. It has been discovered! We recommend a reservation for dock space. They have not turned anyone away yet, but they have days where they are already full during the 2018 season.
When we visited in late May, the new building at the Prince Rupert Rowing and Yacht Club was nearing completion with its bright red roof. It is gratifying to see the Prince Rupert waterfront developing.
