The parking scenario has changed dramatically for the 2015 season. Gone are the public lots at Snug Harbour and Bayfield Inlet, they’re now resident-only. A $50 parking ticket will be issued (as I unfortunately found out) for parking in those lots.
SPECIAL BYNG INLET NOTICE: Wright’s marina is no longer interested in launching or landing kayaks. A definitively rude woman made this abundantly clear on my last voyage out (“I see you’re launching a kayak”). Boy was she snarky, despite my having paid parking for a full ten days. See below for parking places and current fees for the 2016 season:
|Location||Marina||Phone||Daily fee||Launch fee|
|Snug Harbour||Gilly’s||(705) 342-5552||$7.50||Public dock|
|Dillon||Dillon Cove Marina and Resort||(705) 342-5431|
|Bayfield Inlet||Thompson Marine (website currently offline)||(705) 366-2235|
|Byng Inlet||Ice Cream on the Rocks||(705) 383-0955||$10.00||$4.00|
|Key River||Key Marine Resort||(705) 383-2308||$8.00||$5.00|
|Killarney||Chikanishing Creek (permits at George Lake)||(705) 287-2900||$14.00|
