Just came back from camping during the Thanksgiving long weekend. I was nervous coming here after reading how everyone was complaining about the tiny campsites, and the strictness of the brothers. I had no issues with either. The check in was easy and painless. The man there was pleasant and quick. The camp site was actually bigger than what I... More

A friend of ours recommended this campground. The sites are a little tight to get into but if you are lucky enough to get a water front site it is fantastic The young workers here are constantly busy cleaning and making everything look good. Staff is wonderful and helpful Just a great place while on the island .

This resort was chosen because of the proximity to the Filberg Festival. We were in a tent site and fortunately we were with family in the site next to us. The location is fantastic - right on the ocean and you can see the cruise ships passing by enroute to Alaska. The issues you should know about are: the tent... More

We're from Victoria and we just got back from camping here. My husband, our 3 kids and another family pitched our tents in the grassy spot behind the bathrooms, and loved it! What a great area! Lots of room for the kids to run and play. The beaches are amazing, other campers were super friendly. We'll go back for sure!... More

We stay here every year at the same time for over a week. Why? Everything. The view is phenomenal. The people have become friends. It's close to town yet fully in nature. It's the personal touches that make this spot. The newsletters. The greetings. The maintenance and the feeling that you matter because... You do. Look forward to this every... More

After having a terrible experience in another RV park close by, we were really lucky to get a spot in this one on short notice! Yes, the campsites are close, but the people you meet and the views you get are fantastic! Nice and clean, friendly people, beach right at your doorstep. I would recommend it for sure.
