Neys Park, with its 1-mile-long sand beach and great views of Pic Island is already known to many campers and travelers who stay at the campground, but the best parts of Neys are only accessible by boat. The scenic, weathered and rounded gray or pink rock along the western side of the Coldwell Peninsula is syenite, similar to granite in appearance. At the end of the peninsula are a number of small islands, in addition to Pic Island, and two beaches. As there is no road or trail access, it’s a quiet and pretty place to spend an afternoon. Currently there are no backcountry facilities for camping, so reaching the islands makes for a long day trip. Pic Island, although not part of the park, has only one landing spot (Windy Bay), and the beach there is covered with driftwood logs. Overnight camping is possible on Crown land west of the Pic River, however.
