Beware if you have a refrigerator that is out of warranty. We drove slowly over the 3 mile washboard road from the main highway. At the facility, our RV refrigerator (6 years old) was working fine. But when we (again slowly) drove out and went to our next campground, the refrigerator was dead. I surmise that the metal in the condenser became brittle with age, and that a crack happened due to the washboard road. So we had to pay $1,800 for a new refrigerator. Our trailer was just 6 years old, and this was an unexpected disaster. Also, our freezer had been full of newly caught salmon, and we needed to get a cheap styrofoam cooler with ice to limp back to Seattle.
As for the resort, it was lovely, although there is one space that had no view, and that was our space. I won't be risking the trip again because of the poor road, but otherwise it was a superb place to camp.
I don't remember the site number, but this website forced me to enter one, so I said 111X. all the other sites have views and are fine. - Bill from Seattle

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

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

This is a basic campground. No services besides hand pump water and outhouses. Nice sandy beach. This campground is great for using as a home base to explore the trails, waterfalls and park. - jodyc

Beautiful scenery for dry campers - no hookups or showers but water is available. Beach is sandy but can be a bit of a walk to water's edge depending on lake level. Lovely flat, treed sites. Great hiking, boating, fishing and fresh, clean air. - Mrs. Snowbird

Beautiful park. This was our 4th time here. We were here for only one day to visit friends. But we did manage to get in a walk on the beautiful trail that goes up the Oyster river. - Ross Brand

We stayed in a site by the ocean which was away from the main campground and where we were was very quiet. The restaurant is one minute walk away so very handy if you don't feel like cooking. Would definitely stay here again. - sandgropers

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

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

Clean well run park. Noisey next to busy road, float plane and helicopter takeoff area. - GerryT

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

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

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

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
