Caycuse (Camp 6)

Caycuse is native for "scraping the barnacles off the bottom of the canoe", and is located approximately 20 km outside of Lake Cowichan on the south shore. Originally a float camp, Caycuse was an isolated logging camp across the lake from Youbou. It was owned by the Empire Lumber Company around 1910, and then Gilson & McCoy took over the operation and moved it to its present location at Nixon Creek about 1926. It closed from 1931 to 1933 due to the Depression, but re-opened under new ownership Industrial Timber Mills. In 1946, BC Forest Products took over from ITM. At its peak, in the early 1950's, an estimated 1000 loggers and their families lived at the camp. Fletcher Challenge Canada acquired the operation in 1988 and closed the camp in 1992.
