We reserved a spot for two nights as there was nothing else available in the area. Reserving is a two part process. We filled out the on-line form and then had to telephone during business hours to confirm and pass along our credit card info. The on line form was a waste as we re-did everything via telephone. The road to the park is a very narrow two way road that is also shared by bicyclists and equestrian users. The horse traffic was not an issue but the bicyclists, I’m sure, wished the internal combustion engine and all of us users were dead. That’s not the RV park's fault, just part of the process of getting there. The last lap is a steep curvy descent with amazing views of the ocean. When you reach the RV park you will notice that the office/owner’s residence is a dump. As well, you will see about four port-a-potties across the road. That is the wash room. No showers or laundry. No store, no facilities what so ever. There is a single rope swing for kids to play on. Check-in was easy. She took our money and gave us a site number and a point in that direction. Sites are not numbered. There were three vacant sites where she pointed. I asked a camper what number they were in and counted back from them to find my designated number. We had a “Nature Setting” as opposed to Oceanside. Our site was long but very narrow. It is pretty much slide to awning all the way along. Oceanside is just as cramped. There is one fifteen amp service shared by two sites. I tried to microwave 6 oz of liquid and discovered it took two minutes. Normally it takes 20 seconds. We used the power for lighting only after that. There is no sewer service but you can borrow a portable honey wagon if you want. The dump station is on a hill so it is a waste of time trying to empty your tanks there. There no cable, no Wi-Fi, no nothing except the gorgeous view of the ocean. The “miles of beach” as listed on their web site are all rocks. Very hard to walk on. The pictures with sand on their web site do exist. They are just very small isolated pockets. In a nut shell, if the fee was $25.00 I would have a hard time considering returning but at $44.10 including taxes, not a chance. This is one place that is just pillaging and plundering ‘cause there is such a shortage of RV parks in the area. We will never return. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very clean, short walking distance to the beach and ocean (Harrow Strait). New facilities, very attentive staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park. The permanents are in a separate section. The sites are level and most have a partial view to the water. The only criticism I can offer is that the Wi-Fi is very spotty and not dependable. You have to go near the office to get good Wi-Fi. This RV park is close to Victoria so it is easy to sightsee and tour the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 1 month while visiting family. Campsites are large, level, and very well maintained. Had a nice view of the water and the beach was wonderful. Washrooms and showers were spotless, and staff was great. Full timers are in another section with no derelict units. WiFi and TV worked fine. Like previous reports said, look the other way on the way in. We would stay here again; it is the best park by far on southern Vancouver Island. We camped here in a Motorhome.
