The walk in camp sites are terrible. Tiny with zero privacy, no fire pits and no picnic tables. They stick communal areas right beside some of the sites so you get even less privacy. Kids running around constantly make it feel like you pitched a...More

We stayed for one night at a walk in site, which was only a couple minutes walk from our car. It was worth it to not have cars driving by all the time and if you needed a wheelbarrow they were available to wheel stuff...More

We came here on a whim and didn't regret it one bit. The pier was nice, with balconies along the way for even better viewing. The view was the best! And we enjoyed exploring the huge driftwood along the shores. There are 2 cabins here...More

Stopped on our way to Whistler. Probably one of the most beautiful places we saw. When you visit the Vancouver area, it seems like every day, you keep on saying that... but this is truly a great place to stop and relax for a bit...

The best would be to call and ask the campsite manager, some lots were larger than other and could accommodate a few larger tents

You can walk around the site no problem, you just won't be allowed to take your car in unless you are staying or visiting a campsite. Head right to the back, there is a small inlet with a great lookout.

Yes. There is a socket for large RVs and trailers for each site. Except the walk-in, no-vehicles sites.
