Description & Services
Information Roods Head Park 
Rood's Head Park is a coastal look off that is perched on the southern most point of the isthmus, that forms the town of Lockeport.  
From the top of the hill, a small path winds down to the rocks, providing not only a fantastic view of the breaking surf, but a breathtaking view of the Crescent Beach. 
Depending on the time of year, it is also a great place to view Gull Rock, one of our resident Lighthouses. 
Features: Walking Trails, Public Recreation Space, Natural Space, Chetwynd's Beach 
Camping by appointment, electric services on site for 5-6 campers.
