Port Clements is centrally located on Graham Island, just a half hour from Masset, fifteen minutes from Tlell, and one hour from the spectacular West Coast, this welcoming community is the perfect place from which to explore all the beautiful corners of Haida Gwaii.
Nestled at the south-east side of Masset Inlet, near the mouth of the famous Yakoun River, this old logging and mill town is commonly known as “Port” to the Islanders. Whereas, at the beginning of the twentieth century, people and freight gained access to the center of Graham Island on water through Port Clements, today it acts as a “Gateway to the Wilderness”. Hunting, fishing for Salmon and Steelhead trout, picking mushrooms, walking along the Golden Spruce Trail, taking photographs of the beautiful scenery, and exploring the interior of the Island with its lakes, rivers, and rainforest containing old growth cedar and Sitka Spruce are all activities associated with Port Clements.
This friendly and relaxed community offers visitors a complete range of services and facilities. The Sunset Park at the west side of the community offers RV sites with hyrdo and water hook-ups, tenting sites, a Gazebo, walking trails, and a bird watching tower overlooking the Yakoun River Estuary. Relax and observe Eagles, Herons, Ducks, Geese, Cranes, and other birds as well as our marvelous sunsets which unfold over the Inlet.
The Museum is operated by the Port Clements Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1985 and after countless volunteer hours the museum opened it’s doors in 1987. The indoor and outdoor displays are open daily to the public from June to September and on weekends for the remainder of the year. The artifacts of pioneer life offer a unique glimpse into life as it once was in Port Clements.
