    Island wenches from our previous Catalina campout!



    Two Harbors Campground - Tent cabins

    Avast ye seamen! Our campground is on a bluff with an ocean view. We have booked 4 tent cabins for 24 pirate campers. Each site has:

    • A simple canvas & wood enclosure with 6 army-style cots
    • A porch, shade structure, picnic table, fire pit with cooking grate
    • Coleman 2-burner cooking stove with propane
    • Water faucet sink, porta-potty toilets
    • Free open-air (cold water) shower. (For hot showers, walk to the village)

    This allows us to enjoy our own group campground, away from the event area in the village.  So you can relax whenever you want, and check out the entertainment as you like.  (If we had opted to tent camp, then we would have to bring all our camping gear, and be surrounded by tons of other people).



    Two Harbors village (10 min walk) has a few amenities:

    • The ferry pier & Visitor Services:  Arrange for gear haul, extra firewood, propane delivery, questions.
    • General Store: Sells food, beverages, alcohol, camping items, souvenirs ($$ island prices)
    • Restaurant & barThere is a fast food burger restaurant, a casual restaurant, a bar, and much more gruel & grog will be set up for this event. Expect lines however. Bringing some of your own food will save on costs & waiting. Cocktails include the famous "Buffalo Milk" (Kahula, creme de cocoa, vodka & whipped cream).
    • Restroom: Faucets, flush toilets and coin-operated hot showers (bring quarters/cash; there is a change machine)
    • Dive & Recreation Center: Rental kayaks, mountain bikes, snorkel gear, etc. May go quickly because of the weekend, so reserve once we get to the island.

    Outdoor Activities: There will be plenty of time to enjoy the island's nature. We will have some optional organized activities, but you are also free to spend your time as you wish on this trip.

    • Beach time: Swimming, snorkeling, lounging, just below our campground

    • Short hiking trails: Explore the isthmus trail to see the other side of the island.

    • Long hiking trails: 12 miles RT to Little Harbor on the other side of the island, secluded beach

    • Kayaking: Rentals available

    • Snorkeling: Bring your own gear or rental 

    Buccaneer Days event entertainment: Thar be a full schedule of DJs, bands, treasure hunt and costume contest. Feel free to parrrghty, or just relax back at camp!
