Private or Public land?

Regarding trail Anvil Island Circumnavigation near Vancouver, BC

Is it all private land then? I don't need a 'campsite' per say, just wanted to know if it's possible to camp on the island if it's public, but I also don't want to be setting up a tent on private property .... even if I am below high tide line.

Maybe you could talk to these guys:

They run a bunch of kids/religious camps on their property, not what you're looking for, I'm sure, but they've been on the island since the 30's, and probably know what's going on there.

Regarding sleeping below the tide line .... I'm assuming you're kidding.

I'd heard that there was a relatively straightforward hike to Leading Peak on Anvil Island. I don't know much about it, but I would be surprised if that was all private land. Maybe you could ask someone at the retreat about the hike.

Thanks Chris! I actually bought a recreational marine map at MEC and it indicates a camping area on Anvil near a beach. Strange, but I'm gonna investigate this one. I know about the trail and that's why I'd like the option of staying overnight, to do the trail, chill on the beach and make it a fun over-nighter.

Anyways, I was under the assumption that no homeowner can claim the land below the high tide line to be theirs, but yeah, I was kidding about sleeping there.
