  • Beckwith Island is the eastern of three islands in southeastern Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada. Its' highest elevation is 226 meters above sea level. Like its populated neighbour Christian Island to the west, and Hope Island to the northwest, the uninhabited island is part of an Ojibwa reserve. On the mainland, Cedar Point lies directly south of the island and the popular Thunder Beach is located to the southeast of Beckwith Island. The island is a pristine, and ecologically sensitive island of over 800 acres, featuring lovely sandy beaches and dunes, juniper bushes, as well as the rare and protected three-pronged awn grass, plus forests of oak, maple, birch and conifer trees and no development of any kind except for simple outhouses to serve boaters, campers and picnickers. Camping is permitted but you must obtain permission in advance from the local band council on Christian Island. The eastern side of Beckwith island is often a favorite place for boats to moor. Beckwith Island and the attached "Little Beckwith" are part of the Beausoleil First Nation. There is currently no development on the island at present. There are two boat anchorage points. Wikipedia
