15 RV Parks near Black Creek, British Columbia
Oct 2016 - $25.00
We stayed here a total of 4 nights. Very nicely laid out campground in amongst tall trees and quiet but it is the end of the season. The beach is a short walk away. This our second stay here and we would stay here again in preference to other campgrounds in the vicinity. - sandgropers

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

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 park, like so many other BC Provincial Parks is over priced at the regular rate. Camping in the off season however, is reasonable for seniors who live in British Columbia. Too bad that so many of the parks also close early every year. The park is especially good for walking and hiking, and link up with other trails if you walk towards the group sites and continue straight. Staff are great and everything is well kept. - Snoet

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

Very nice park. Very popular. They only take reservations for 3 or more days. Very friendly helpful staff. Pool closes mid September but the hot tub is open all year. - Ross Brand

Drive in site. Magestic view of mountains and ocean from all waterfront sites. Will definitely return. - Brandysdad

This campsite is beautiful and washroom and shower spotless. Great spot in front of the sea. Free WiFi and cable. I would recommended 100%. - Yvcl

Price is CAD including tax. Reception was friendly. This is a lovely campground and easily the best of the small number of places we have stayed so far. Sites are reasonably well spaced, with trees in between. Group sites are unshaded and closely spaced. I suppose if you're in a group, that's what you want. It was fairly difficult to position our trailer in our back-in site so that the slide-out & awning were free of interference. The site was not long enough for our 26' trailer plus the tow vehicle. But it was worth the hassle: the campground has lots of green space and even a pond. The Seal Bay Nature Park is adjacent, and access to the trail system is through a gate in the fence. Showers are $1 per 4 min.! There is a nice clubhouse. Wi-fi was good. - Ian in Nelson
Jul 2016 - $35.00
Rate is for a full hookup site. We stayed here a couple of years ago when the RV Park was still under development. The owner put a lot of work into it. Very quiet and somewhat remote location to get away. We stayed in one of the group campsites where privacy is very limited. Lots of deer poo on the grass, so watch your step or clean up (nobody else will do it).
Our main point of criticism is the WiFi that is now included in the rate. Back then is was 2$ per day extra but strong and reliable. Now you can just forget about it. Other than that it is a nice place to stay when exploring the Comox Valley. - TheSchweitzers

Super clean, lots of money went into this location. Right next to very large regional park with great easy trails including off-leash dog trails. - User3527

I haven't counted how many times we have stayed up here. But coming back this year wasn't the last time for sure. Everything we stated in previous reviews is still true. Camp for free up to three nights and enjoy the views and hiking options Strathcona PP has to offer in this area. - TheSchweitzers
Aug 2016 - $1.00
We stayed again last year and already twice this year.
Still an excellent place to stay and go hiking. We would just advise to avoid the Saturday nights because there might be an event going on at the Raven Lodge keeping you up at night. Check their website or call if there will be a party.
We discovered a water tap at the ranger station which might be helpful if you stay more than one night. Bring some leveling equipment, most of the parking lot is sloped. - TheSchweitzers

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

Fairly new owners of the campground are working hard to clean up the place after it had been run down in the past. About 1/2 of the sites toward the front of the campground are occupied by full time residents and some of these sites could use the help. Everybody we talked to was very friendly though. We would stay again.
The campground is very convenient to town, we were easily able to walk to the Canada Day Parade in town. Our full hookup site was in the middle of the campground on grass under trees. Other areas in the campground were more clear if satellite views are important.
Wifi was good, we had a 5 bar cell signal (ATT/Rogers), and the free cable had 50 channels. Showers were $1 CAD per 5 minutes. - readontheroad

The sites in this park are quite close together with not a lot of privacy but the location is terrific. Across the street from Discovery Pass where we saw cruise ships, and lots of eagles plus very close to town and all amenities. This is probably one of the cleanest parks around and we even saw staff washing the dumpsters inside and out. Never seen that before. - Arlene T

The check-in area is not very well defined, so I ended up parking in front of a couple of empty sites. Staff were friendly and efficient. Our site #11 was in the middle of the north ocean front view section. It was fairly level, gravel and had a table and fire ring. There were two sewer outlets in the middle and up front. There was just enough room to extend our slideout and awning. We pulled into our site due to location of utilities. RVs alternately pulled in or backed in for many of the campground sites except for a few pull-throughs. From our site there were great views of Discovery Passage with marine traffic going by all the time. Our friendly neighbour even gave us a home made can of sockeye salmon after I had lamented that I couldn't find any made in Canada in the supermarkets anymore. Cable TV had around 30 channels and picture was clear. Wi-Fi from the park was pay. After I paid my fee, I discovered that a Shaw open portal was available and free. The washrooms and laundry room are accessed by a door code. This park is convenient to the downtown area and there is a walkway to a nearby public park at the end of Tyee Spit. I would probably stay here again, but the wife says try another place next time. - Onemoretrail

The new cabins were very comfortable, and well furnished. A most delightful 2 day stay.
Only comment would be, we had to leave before the office opened at 9 and the was no place to leave the keys. - Ross Brand

This is the perfect base for a fly fishing trip on Vancouver Island. Expect all campgrounds to be full when the salmons are in. Lots of large sites in this campground. All pretty level and with good privacy. Water sources all over the place. Lots of tent campers here but bigger rigs will find a place as well (we stayed her before with a 51' rig). Except for a few sites on the river the sites are forested but not too dark. Traffic noise from the highway dies down at night. Overall a well laid out and maintained Provincial Park Campground offering good value for money (except 11$ for a second vehicle is outrageous). Dump station in the park, 5$ (coins needed). We'll be back in September (going after some Coho ...) - TheSchweitzers
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
Aug 2016 - $25.00
Rate is for a dry site.
We stayed here during the pink salmon run when all campgrounds are booked to the last spot. Luckily we could secure a site for a few days. It feels like a Provincial Park. The sites are well shaded by trees and divided by shrubbery thus providing pretty good privacy. Highway noise is barely noticeable, we had a good nights sleep. Dump station and water taps are available. The restrooms were clean which is always a challenge when the campground is full. The biggest nuisance was the lingering smoke from all the campfires going on. No breeze up here in the woods.
WiFi is available throughout the campground but slow and iffy at times.
Overall we find this place to offer very good value for money compared to a Provincial Park campground. We'll be back. - 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

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
