Mosaic Forest Management and the Hupačasath First Nation have teamed up to open a new campground this spring.

The campground at Loon Lake will offer 27 sites with views of Mount Arrowsmith on the stocked fishing lake near Port Alberni, a report said.

It will be the forest company’s 14th island camping ground. Mosaic manages forest planning, operations, and the sale of products for TimberWest and Island Timberlands.

The Hupačasath First Nation and Mosaic have signed a memorandum of agreement to collaborate on cultural, business, and sustainable projects on Hupačasath territory.

Hupačasath Elected Chief Brandy Lauder said the campground will be referred to as “ʕaʔuk ʔaama k̓anis” (ah-uk aah-ma ka-niss), which translates to “lake loon camp and rest area.”

Lauder stated that the First Nation looks forward to working with Mosaic to “explore more opportunities to benefit our people.”

Jeff Zweig, president and chief executive officer of Mosaic, said that the Loon Lake campsite will give people visiting the Alberni Valley the chance to explore the wild and learn about the traditions of Indigenous nations as well as to connect with friends and family.

One of Mosaic’s objectives is to provide recreation opportunities within and around the “working forest” through dozens of access agreements with local groups and a network of non-profit camping sites on Vancouver Island, he said.
