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. We camped at Parkside Campground in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at Parkside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is 10 km west of Campbell River on the Gold River Highway so if you need supplies or entertainment you will have to travel in to the city.

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. We camped at Parkside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Parkside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is set among the forest with each site bordered by plentiful amounts of salal and trees. Roads are gravel and a bit narrow. Some long rigs may have trouble navigating the turns and backing into sites. Bathrooms are very clean. Wi-Fi, while not the quickest, worked well. Playground for the kids. Located west of Campbell River, just past Elk Falls Provincial Park. Definitely stay here again. We camped at Parkside Campground in a Motorhome.
