At Rock Bay, there is a prominent rock point in the middle of the bay.  The top of this rock was used for a gun emplacement during WW2.  You can still see where the top was leveled and filled with asphalt.

On the front slope at the top is a petroglyph of a face.  Somebody has painted the grove with black paint which is the wrong way of making them stand out for photographs as it permanently defaces this artifact.  The best way to do this is to sprinkle flour into the groves and lightly brush off the excess with a whisk.

On the south side of the hill are some Pictographs.

This site is best visited by land.  North of Campbell River on Hwy. 19 is the Rock Bay Road.  Drive to the end and walk through the private campground to the rock hill.
