South Campbell River waterfront is beach location near the grid line with a good view to Puget Sound.

There is a sign along the coast highway spur (19A) through town that marks the 50 degree parallel. Strathcona Gardens is a nearby map landmark. Discovery Pier is another nearby landmark on the maps.

There are several good stops at the waters edge just to the north (CO70) and south (CN79) with a very good view SE to Puget Sound. On the North side of the line in CO70 is a boat launch and restaurant with open gravel parking lot adjacent to the beach. K7MDL operated from this location in the 2003 September VHF contest.

Kelsey Bay Log Sort offers some gravel parking lots at waters edge. No contacts made on my trip but historically this has been a decent location. In 2003, one ham with VHF SSB/CW (VE7BZY) lives in Sayward in CO70. Hills block SE path but contacts have been made here. Easy access not far from Sayward.
