Nice view of the ocean and walking trail right at our doorstep, along with a small sandy Beach Park a short distance away. Wi-Fi not available at our site, as you have to be near the guest house to pick up signal. Overall a pleasant stay for the money. We camped at Osborne Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

Crofton is a bit off the beaten path but well worth visiting. The park has many long term residents but only a few site were junky. We were able to secure E10 which is right next to the water. The views are very nice even though we could see the stacks and steam from the nearby Pulp Mill. It is quiet and sheltered. There is a lot of foot traffic almost on our door step from the Board Walk that will take you to the B C Ferry Dock (goes to Salt Spring Island) and nearby shops. Basic services are available in Crofton. Sites are large enough but not huge. Wifi was non existent but we were told that going in. Our big complaint was the power. Probably because we were here off season, and there was not an extra charge for power, all residents were probably using the electric to heat their units. It took forever to warm anything in the microwave so we limited our use of appliances. We will be back to explore Salt Spring and surrounding areas. We feel we were well served for the $28.00 Cdn inc Tax that we paid. We camped at Osborne Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

We called to make a reservation and were fortunate to be able to reserve a full-service (30 amp) site that was adjacent to the beach (E10). The park has power and water only sites right along the water, too, and further from the water there are full-service sites. Reception was excellent. We were advised that Wi-Fi was only accessible very near to the office, and even with an antenna booster, I was unable to connect from our site. There is a very nice boardwalk that goes in both directions from the park. The walk to Crofton is short, and there are a few shops, cafes, and a grocery store with a surprising selection of items. We did get some odor from the pulp mill early one morning, but for the rest of our 3-day stay, it was not detectable. We used the park as a base to explore the area's wineries, lakes, small bay towns and Chemainus. We explored other RV parks in the area, and we thought that Osborne Bay was the nicest. We would stay there again if we could get site E10. We camped at Osborne Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

"Diamond in the rough" best sums it up. Nice transients, many miserable full-timers who ignore the rules, unsafely. Very quiet, except for the 4:00 am risers going to work, slamming doors and roaring out. Although very close to a pulp and paper mill, there is absolutely no smell ! No recreation facilities except a kids' swing and tree fort, unsafe ocean swimming, no beach, and a low-tide accessible boat dock. Be prepared to be moved from site-to-site if you are not one of the long-time returning families - they come first, and rest of transients are slotted into the short vacancies. Rate reflects longer-term stay. Note on the laundry - often one or more broken machines, always dirty, poorly maintained. Water pressure at sites varies between 20 - 32 psi. Water is drinkable, chlorinated, fluoridated, but clean and safe. Town of Crofton is quite small, has two small grocery stores, one selling booze, there is a pub, book store, video rental and knickknack shops. It's only 20 minutes to a larger town (Duncan), or an hour to Victoria or Nanaimo. We camped at Osborne Bay Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
