May 2010 - $20.00
Small, older RV park with direct access to Saratoga Beach. Quiet park and pet friendly. Staff gave us a site with an ocean view. We paid off-season rates. - Thedogsma

This is a very nice location by the Oyster River which provides for good fishing all year. We also discovered wonderful trails and nature walks nearby and at least two very good restaurants within 5-8 minutes drive. The park is fairly well looked after and the marina is always busy with boats in and out. The washrooms were clean but have the look of aged facilities. Pay showers are one dollar for 5 minutes. The park store was closed for renovations at the time of our visit. A local grocery store is within 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk. The golf course is within walking distance, and it is a well designed 9 hole short course. A good area to stay if you are visiting Courtenay or Campbell River as it is the half way point. A meal at the Chinese buffet at Storeys Beach called the "Driftwood" is a must. The food is very good and the price is right. - LEONIDAS2010

There is something for nearly everyone here; boat ramp, marina, some waterfront sites, pool, tennis court, adult pull-throughs, adult back-ins, beach, fishing. Lots of permanents, lots of families. Tables and fire rings. Children and dogs here seem particularly well behaved. We had a very good feeling about our stay here, will come back again. Water pressure 70 PSI. Environmentally handicapped; recycling is accidental, resulting from effort to contribute to a children’s charity by collecting plastic and aluminum beverage containers. If you ask about recycling, they will direct you to a good community recycling center a short distance outside the park. - meanderingman

Very poor narrow pavement/gravel/dirt interior roadways. Roadways also have very sharp interior curves and turns. Very large trees also make turning a larger rig an adventure. Several times we watched as others had to ask campers to move their vehicles so that they could make a routine turn. Most sites are lumpy uneven grass and are poorly maintained. Sites are very narrow and appear to have been poorly thought out in design and location. This park advertises that 80% of their business is return customers. That may be. Can't figure out why. It is very obvious that there are rigs there that spend the entire summer there, and some even bring their own lawnmower! This is the problem. These people also believe that they are not subject to the park rules and the park staff does nothing to enforce the park rules. For example rules state that each site is limited to one sleeping unit and one passenger vehicle per site. Other vehicles are supposed to be parked in overflow parking. Boats and trailers are not supposed to be parked in the camping area. The spot next to us had a large travel trailer, a large custom van, and an extended cab pickup truck, plus a boat and trailer. The result is that our view was totally blocked from our site as we were walled in by aluminum. When management was contacted they deferred to the "dayshift staff" and nothing was ever done. One staff member did mention that the fulltimers "seem to think that the rules do not apply to them." The marina is in poor condition and some of the finger peers are treacherous to walk out on. Security was never seen. The night before we left (Fri.) there were several large, loud drinking parties. One person decided that chopping wood at 3:15 in the morning was a reasonable thing to do. Management was unaware of the problem. We had fun during the time that we were there, in spite of the park, not because of the facility. We cannot recommend this place, and quite honestly when we explored the area we found another RV park another 3 KM down the road. Should have gone there. Next time we will. - mrhddh

Large campground located on a beautiful stretch of beach. Great tidal changes due to very shallow water. Lots of families and big groups on the weekends. It's very popular for obvious reasons. Nice to have hot showers available in a Provincial Park. Most don't have them. - gtogrl1

First let me say that hookups are not available at any Provincial Park in British Columbia. This is a large campground located within a Provincial Park along the east coast of Central Vancouver Island. The sites are large, very level and most are shaded by large trees. Each site has a firepit and firewood can be purchased in the campground. In addition, staff will come around with firewood during the evening and you can purchase same right at your site. Staff are friendly, there are flush toilets and hot showers. Lots of kids. Great hiking trails and access to the beach. Paved roads throughout, so the kids can enjoy riding their bikes. The villages of Merville and Black Creek are close by, there is a golf course nearby and also a restaurant/pub. - Luke_Warmwater

The location and amenities are superb. However, we will not return. We stayed in September 2015 and the internet was diabolical, we were told that they were in the process of installing a new system, so we put up with it. (we need the internet to keep tabs on our business). Then this week, June 2016, we are told that the internet is poor because they are installing a new system, what they really mean is that they don't want to pay for a decent system but want your money anyway and will keeping fobbing you off with the same lame excuse.
So I set up the cable TV, nothing! In 2015 it worked though. Nothing was said about this when we checked in. So now you have to leave a deposit on $100 to get a decoder box which you have to install in your RV somewhere, our neighbour tried it and said it was not just a simple plug in but required removing the TV off the wall and using red, yellow, white cables to make the connection. On mine these cables are connected to the surround sound so I am not messing with it.
So for a camp site with poor internet and no TV it is overpriced and not suitable for our needs.
The worst part is that the owners think they can get away with cutting costs, providing a diminished service, and expecting us to return.
No thank you. Management/Owners wake up Internet and TV have been BASIC services for the past 15 years or more! - Codliveroil

What a fabulous park. Overlooking the marina with the ocean and mainland mountains in the background - we are in heaven! Quiet and clean- well maintained. Parked under huge Douglas firs with lots of grass. - vallarson
Feb 2016 - $26.00
Booked in for 2 weeks mid to end of Feb, 2016. Rate was $180/wk Cdn. Office staff checking in were extremely friendly and helpful.
We chose site 34 because it had a concrete patio beside our rig. Grassy site with view of boat marina and mountains on the BC mainland across the Strait of Georgia.
This park is mid way between Campbell River on the north and Courtenay/Comox to the south so plenty to see and do in both towns. - DCM/JMB

This park is out in the country so it is quiet. The sites are big enough and there is a huge group camping area. We had a pull-through site with tress/bushes on each side so it was private. There is a club house but it was being used by an RV club. There is small lake in the middle of the campground. Nice place for a one-night stop. We would stay here again. - Living Skies
Sep 2014 - $36.00
Seal bay RV Park is second to none! The owners are great hosts. We have stayed here 2 times a year for 2-5 days at a time for the last 7 years. The sites are large and level. The club house is outstanding, as is the fire pits for groups or just your self. A great bbq/picnic site at the club house that also has an indoor large fire place. The lake is stocked with trout that are up to 5 lbs. Seal Bay Park next door has a number of trails to hike. the park is very close to Courtenay and Comox, the hospital, etc. So if you are looking for RV park this the place to book into. - ilsbells

Very nice campground in rural Courtenay. The graveled sites are large enough and for the most part are level, with many receiving some shade. There isn't too much privacy between sites, but as the planted trees mature this should provide some screening. Each site has a fire pit. There are clean and modern washroom with a 4 minute shower costing $1. The communal building is nearly complete and usable with a fantastic fire place with a large screen TV. Fly fishing is available for $15. There are stores are a 10 minute drive away. Wi-Fi was excellent and was free. This CG is a very nice, quiet retreat. We will definitely stay here again. - Fred1609

Little known to the public, there is free camping right on Mount Washington, offered by the Alpine Lodge that runs the whole place. From the highway exit it is almost 20 kms up to an elevation of about 1500 meters. During summer the parking lot of the Hawk chairlift on Nordic drive is the designated RV parking spot. No hookups or any kind of facilities. Check in with the Alpine Lodge before you park. In our case the Hawk parking lot was closed and we were directed to park on the large parking lot at Raven Lodge at the end of Nordic drive, where the hiking trails start. Pick a spot at the very end of the lot and the occasional early hikers won't disturb you. Gorgeous scenery and totally quiet at night. The maximum stay is three nights and you need to be fully self sustained. Take all your garbage with you when leaving. We will be back for sure. - TheSchweitzers

The RV site felt very crowded-there were a lot of RVs on a large gravel area. You had to pay extra for showers (we opted not to use them) and Wi-Fi (this worked well).
The park is separated from the ocean by a chain link fence and a road. To get the chance to look at the ocean properly we had to leave the park and take a short walk up the road.
Because of the way the RVs were crammed in, the park did not feel particularly relaxing, but was a useful stop off point. - JulieTr

We are traveling through Canada and USA for two months. We have seen and will see many RV parks. This one is, so far, the best value for money we have encountered. The plots are quite large, but the highlight was that the restrooms and the laundry where the cleanest we have come across.
They charge extra for shower time and laundry, but you get a rather clean facilities and a big laundry room, heated, clean, with machines where to buy soap and softener if you have to.
The staff at the reception where very friendly and helpful and stay until 19:30 even though it was off season. - The Divers
Oct 2015 - $25.00
We stayed here in Class C motorhome with our two labs. Paved walking path across the street, beautiful walk along harbor/spit (busy with fishing boats, tug boats pulling loads of logs and wood chips, sea lions & sea otters swimming). Park very open, little privacy, but this was not an issue. Firewood available for fire pits $, Good Internet for a small fee, friendly staff, very close to major shopping (groceries, restaurants , drug store, clothing, souvenirs,etc.). Full hookup, including cable TV. You can see the ferry crossing to Quadra Island every half hour. We would definitely recommend this location/ park. Crushed rock sites with small grassy area. - Live Life
Sep 2014 - $16.00
Nice setting in a dense forest along the Quinsam River close to Campbell River. The roads in the site are a combination of paved and gravel. Sites are well separated so quite private. Wood is available for a fee. The river sites can now be reserved as well as selected other sites. Rate is now $ 18 with a half price rate for BC seniors after Labor Day. We would stay again if in the area. - lrp374

This park is just 3 km north of Campbell River, right off Hwy 3, offering good hiking and fishing opportunities around. The sites are all dry camping. Lots of sites available for larger rigs (we are 51' combined length). Fairly easy to maneuver. Level was OK. Most of the sites, including the ones on the river are reservable. Chances to get a river site without a reservation are slim to none during summer season. Those on the river are reasonably bright, while the others are mostly heavily shaded and pretty dark. Pick a side in the rear end to get away from the road noise (mostly dying down at night anyway). All sites have a picnic table and a fire pit. Well spaced, offering good privacy. A real downer for bigger rigs is the dump station ($5). Very tight to get into without hitting the curb. In fact we were not able to get around it. Overall a nice Provincial Park close to town with lots of larger sites. However, we didn't like the darkness and the dump station, therefore will try a different campground around Campbell River next time. - TheSchweitzers
Sep 2015 - $33.00
This park has some good points and some bad points. On the positive side it is quiet and the bath house is clean. On the negative side there is a issue with the power. The trailer AC voltmeter would read 102 volts and the surge protector would show reverse polarity. In a few minutes this would change to OK and then back again. It appeared that the campground was intermittently losing one side of the 220v feed. The sites are small and overgrown with tress and bushes, the roads are narrow, and access and exit with a larger unit is difficult. With the rain falling we were truly in a rain forest. We and would not stay at this park again. - Living Skies
Sep 2014 - $32.00
A nice older park with lots of trees and large sites. Each site has a nice picnic table and fire pit and firewood is available. The services are reliable, easy to access and the WIFI although slow seems to work even in the trees. The roads in the park are very narrow with turns that are very tight for longer units. They have several sites they call pull-throughs but are really “pull-offs“ and for long units may impede access to adjacent sites. It's best to check site options before committing to a site. We would stay again if in the area. - lrp374
Aug 2013 - $24.00
The rate is based on the weekly rate. The nightly rate is $28. The campground was very well supervised, making it nice and quiet at night. Wi-Fi was weak, and no OTA TV available. Too many trees for satellite TV. Roads were narrow and dusty (lack of rain). Sites are small and difficult to get in and out of with larger units. Showers were free. Great hiking and sight seeing in the area. An excellent place to stay with smaller units, but not suitable for those who want to party. - Snoet
Jul 2006 - $28.00
We found this small park to be friendly, comfortable and clean. The facilities were a bit old, and the road noise was a concern. But we slept well and enjoyed our stay. - terrilee
