The Pachena Bay Campground features private sites for Huu-ay-aht Citizens, situated along the Pachena River, and located on the right as you drive into the campground. These sites are available for day or overnight camping and administered and operated through the campground kiosk. Reservations are accepted. The fee for private sites, when used by Huu-ay-aht citizens, is by donation.
