We stayed here for a stopover night on our way to Tofino. You need to know where the campground is located; there are no signs until you have reached the place. The location is nice, away from any traffic, thus very quiet. Unfortunately the roads (gravel) inside the campground are in bad shape, lot of potholes and washouts. Low hanging branches also. Be careful when driving in or out with a big rig. We are 51' combined and the trailer is 34'. We had a W/E site right below the office and the site was just large enough for the trailer. When checking in the lady wasn't unfriendly but she wasn't very friendly either. Not to eager to host overnighters I assume. Our assigned site was unlevel and was not cleaned up. Food waste all over the place. Garbage in the fire pit. This just added to the impression of rundown and unmaintained we already had from the roads. Hookups were in the far back but OK. We could catch the Wi-Fi from the office, but I guess any further from the office the signal would be to weak. Overall a quiet place for the night but not very appealing due its lack of maintenance. More a place for permanents or seasonals. We would try a different place with a better value for money on our next stop in Port Alberni. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
WARNING this campground is not in downtown Port Alberni, as shown on some maps (Microsoft Streets and Trips), it is a long nine miles away, the last five of which are over a very busy gravel logging road, at a maximum safe speed of 15 mph. If the logging trucks don’t kill you and your RV survives the washboard, you still may choke on the dust. Don’t come here. The sites are narrow, there are many long term residents, and most sites do not have satellite reception. There is s-l-o-w Wi-Fi and a small friendly, limited menu, cafe with great french fries and it is quiet. Note, this place variously calls itself “China Creek Marina and RV Park,” “China Creek Marina and Campground,” and “China Creek Campground and Marina.” We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is divided into Upper and Lower sites with the Lower site across the road. The Upper park has well spaced sites with a few tent specific sites and the others suitable for most RV's. The park is well maintained and has the new style pit toilets that are nearly as good as flush and are handicapped accessible. Showers are a 700M/750 yds walk through the bush and under the road to the Lower Park. This park is a great place to use as a location to use for day trips in the area. We would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
