The price likely reflects proximity to Victoria, otherwise it would be over priced. However, one is still a bit out of town and Victoria is not a place to drive about in a motorhome. Therefore, you need another vehicle for tourism. That said, it is a great location for catching the ferry to Anacortes from Sidney or for a first night coming from the U.S. on the Anacortes ferry, if you are continuing further north on Vancouver Island. The park is on Indian land and one drives through it about 3/4 mile to get there. We had no problems with the locals, as were mentioned previously by other reviewers. The park staff was friendly and efficient. Maintenance personnel were much in evidence and the park was pretty well maintained. In this light, it is as good as any local RV park and much better than most. Sites were reasonably spaced and separated by shrubbery. The one complaint I had was that the gravel used was of a poor quality and included a large percentage of ground, grey dust. Overall, the park was well laid out and included a decent playground near the non-seasonal sites. Seasonal sites were in a separate area but appeared well maintained. Other reviewers have praised the view, but I found it not at all special. Beach access was inconvenient and in general one should come here for proximity to local attractions. WiFi was good, when it worked. We kept being kicked off and it became very irritating. All in all, we will stay there again when taking the ferry or when vacationing in the Sidney area.

I had been here three years earlier and was met with the same helpful courtesy as before. The park location is simply spectacular, right on the main channel so that one has an excellent view of the shipping traffic and marine life, we saw five whales very close to the shore and directly in front of our motor home. Better yet, the sites are designed for nosed in motor homes and that big front view is awesome! One should be aware that this is essentially a place for adults to relax and appreciate the scenery, with little for the kids to do. The place is quite isolated and you should stock up before arrival. Most likely you will not use this park as a base for seeing the area, as it is too far from Campbell River for convenience and the three mile road in is simply awful. Be prepared for washboard, dust or mud, and narrow sections. The road in is a forestry road and not maintained to normal standards. For a one night stay, the drive in is not worth it. The focus is the seashore and wilderness, think cougars and bears, is right behind you. The park itself is part of a marina complex, with fishing or whale watching if desired. The RV park is very well maintained and very quiet at night, as the party crowd does not fit in. There are a fair number of seasonal RVs and they are assigned the prime sites. If you can get a south side, lower section site do so. That said, most sites are quite good, although the lower level sites are preferred by most. One should also be aware that cell service is at best iffy. One might get a weak signal out in the marina or on the observation platform, but you should not expect to. The internet is very slow, no movies or Facetime. Cable is also limited to a few channels and reception was poor. There is a floating restaurant, but it was pricey and so-so in quality. Go for the view.

We have been coming here for years and like this park. However, there is no policy and no restriction on the number of vehicles, occupants and shelters per site. In addition, tents are allowed next to RVs and people use them not just for a couple of extra children but to house additional adults and families. Moreover, there is no prohibition on motorized scooters and the like. Hence, during the summer vacation season and on June and September weekends, this place can be a bit of a zoo. Across from us, there were two sites with a total of six vehicles, two RVs (one suitable for recycling), two tents, a shelter, five bicycles, an air mattress used outside at night, nine adults and six children. Security patrols do exist, but only when crowded conditions prevail. These patrols do not effect the above issues. I recommend this park, but not at the times listed above. If you have stayed here before, you will see that things are slipping and that it is due to lax policies. If you want value and a peaceful stay, avoid being here during heavy use times.

If not for the Passport America rate I would feel ripped with this place. It is not worth their full price due to no WIFI on sites, a $3.25 charge for cable and an average quality park. Staff were friendly and the park was well enough maintained.

Date of Stay:

A good choice due to location and hidden by buildings from I-5 traffic. The back sections of the park were mostly filled by long term residents, but it was better kept than some similar areas in other parks. Sites were easy to get in and out of. Would stay there again.

Date of Stay:

A good choice as it is away from the I-5 noise but not far away in distance. Convenient to grocery shopping and other services, it was a quiet park. Our pull through site was close to the too small laundry, but in an area of constricted space and due to trees we actually had to back in. Most sites did not have this issue, but look first. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will stay there again.

Date of Stay:

This is a well run park with a friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful staff. Not far off the I-5, but it was enough to mitigate the traffic noise. The only negative was the lack of either good grass or more clean gravel at sites. We shall return.

Date of Stay:

Another big snowbird park. Was amused that RVs had to be less than 10 years old despite the presence of a number of much older and run down looking park models. We were there three nights and remained in a paved overflow area, essentially a parking lot with services. We took our rig out the second day and came back to find someone in our site. The staff had messed up, despite their computer which did not detect the situation. In addition, we had people continually walking through our site and hence no privacy. This was partially offset by a close by grassed dog walk, the best thing about this park.

Date of Stay:

A good choice, convenient to Tucson although maybe not in the upscale area of town (security OK). Nice change from the huge snowbird park, no park models and way more space. Nicely kept, clean, very well maintained and excellent staff. Would not even try another local facility. Near airports, but not intrusive noise.

Date of Stay:

Another huge park for snowbirds, but more upscale than many. Good facilities, but the pool area restaurant was limited and there was (surprisingly), no convenience store despite an obvious need. Many activities and many, many rules. Beautiful grounds although the sites themselves were average. No WiFI, surprisingly. Staff were friendly, but somewhat officious. Water quality was terrible. Have a good filter and bring some. You can buy water from a dispenser at $.25 a gallon. Most laundry machines require a card you buy and then add funds to. In general, maybe too organized.

Date of Stay:

Good reception and friendly staff. A spot to wash your rig for free and also close to highway east to Arizona. Out of town a bit, but easy access to Bakersfield. Oranges in season from the tree at your site, delicious! The plus of oranges at the site are in contrast to the main train line nearby and the trains throughout the night. If they are a negative for you, you will not sleep much.

Date of Stay:

An excellent choice, just off I-5 but far enough back to be quiet. Part of the casino facility and extremely well done on every way. Top notch reception, shuttle to casino, clean everywhere and all new. Do not miss it.

Date of Stay:

The price was right, but we were certainly packed in. The common areas were excellent and the patio restaurant a good choice for a casual lunch or a happy hour drink. There were too many rules about dogs, we were restricted to the perimeter areas only. In addition, the garbage bins were a good hike away. Not particular reason to return re the RV park itself.

Date of Stay:

A relatively small park, but well run and close to town. In fact, the only choice actually in Sedona. Get a reservation if you want to stay for sure. Many people staying only a few days and lots of smaller rigs and rentals.

Date of Stay:

Well run park with a view to the west. Clean and well kept, with good facilities. Out of town, but not far. Near shopping and tourist attractions. Will go back.
