Welcome to Jeremy's Bay Campground! Jeremy's Bay offers campsites for tents, trailers, and RVs, as well as three types of roofed accommodations: Ôasis (new for 2021), oTENTik, and rustic cabins. The Ôasis and the newly re-designed oTENTik and rustic cabins are located in Jim Charles Point.

New this year! Parks Canada has completed significant upgrades and improvements to Jeremy’s Bay Campground to create a modern, safe, and inclusive experience for visitors:

  • Ten new modern and inclusive washroom and shower facilities feature accessible, barrier-free design that meet the needs of diverse visitors. Facilities are gender-neutral, designed for improved privacy and personal security. The new combined facilities add convenience by reducing visitor’s travel distance to showers.
  • New and efficient water and wastewater treatment systems provide a safe and reliable water supply.
  • Environmentally-friendly facilities built using long-life span materials and low maintenance design and equipped with efficient lighting.
  • New and newly-insulated and heated roofed accommodations! Five new heated Ôasis units as well as heated and newly insulated oTENTik village and rustic cabins at Jim Charles Point make shoulder season visits more comfortable. Visitors are still encouraged to bring warm clothing and sleeping bags during the shoulder season.
  • Hikers and mountain bikers alike can enjoy the new Ukme’k Trail, 6.3 km of shared-use trail that connects the campground with popular day-use areas as it twists along the historic and culturally significant Mersey River.
