The area around Nitinat Lake is known for its ruggedness and beauty.  Travellers to Nitinat are advised to be ‘Bear Aware’ at all times, and drive with caution on the logging roads.

Nitinat is in the Territory of the Ditidaht First Nation. Windfest is working with the Ditidaht to ensure a safe, and well run event.

For directions on how to get to Nitinat, please follow this link:


Rustic camping is available on a campground managed by the Ditidaht First Nation.  For 2014,  fresh water will be available at the campsite, in addition to some power hookups. The campsite will fill quickly, and sites may have to be shared.

Participants are advised that parking will be a challenge during the event, and not all cars will fit in the campsite.  Windfest is working with the Ditidaht to provide alternate parking, off the logging roads.
