Near the mouth of the Homathko River and on the North (east) side of the river. From the camp, the Teaquahan river road goes east and the homathko river east road goes north. The Logging Camp at Waddington Harbour is on the east side of the Homathko River about 3 km up the river from the ocean. Chuck, the camp operator, has built a number of access trails in the area going up the Homathko Icefield and into the Whitemantle Range. Vehicle transportation can be arranged going up the Teaquahan River Road, up the Homathko River East Road or up the Homathko River road. There is no bridge across the Homathko river near the camp, but there are vehicles stationed on both sides and a boat to ferry across the river.

There is also a trail going up towards Mt Evans and Teaquahan Mountain. See Homathko Camp - Mt. Evans alpine trail

Access: Access is by chartered aircraft or boat only. There is a well maintained airstrip near the camp that allows landing wheeled fixed wing airplanes. The closest places to Charter a plane from are either Campbell River or Whitesaddle Air at Bluff Lake, which are about the same distance away. Water taxi service is available from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island.

Bulletins
2008.06.30 Greg Jones - Not your typical logging camp
I've stayed here about 1 week out of the month since March. It is home to fishing expeditions, tourists, Powder Magazine, Engineers, Biologists, Foresters etc. Great access to anything. Two heli companies are flying full time right now out of the camp. Not like any coastal camp I have stayed in.
