Very nice setting, clean washrooms, friendly staff. The sites could use a little maintenance with overgrowth of weeds and picnic tables. Sewer and electric too far apart, if you back up too far, electric is hard to reach. I will probably not stay as long next time as they have removed their cable. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. About a 30 minute drive north of Victoria (depending on ferry traffic). Less than 5 minute drive off Hwy 17. Overnight sites are separated from seasonal sites. Combination of drive throughs and back-in sites. Wooden picnic tables showing some age. We stayed 3 nights overlooking marsh/ocean. Paved interior roads. Spacious gravel sites set on angles with good privacy provided by ample planted vegetation. Good water, power, sewer, WiFi. Central "cookhouse" had tables, chairs, some exercise equipment, ping pong table, foosball game. Community fire pit outside "cookhouse". Great path winding through trees/marsh down to the ocean. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Noisy 1st Nations neighbours (next door to RV park) played loud (bass) music 2 nights out of 4 for 10+ hours until 4a.m. Spoiled an otherwise nice experience at Oceanside. We have stayed here 2x before but probably not again. Disappointing! We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Oceanside RV Park lies on the eastern tip of Vancouver Island, a few miles north of Victoria, near Butchart Gardens. Its location is perfect as a launching point for visits north into the island or into the mainland. Or for Canadians, as a staging place for crossing to the States. I don't know when it was built, but the park has the feel of a retirement community: Nice, straight, level streets and sites. Clean, convenient showers and rest rooms. None of the roughness that makes camping an adventure. The trees are too young to provide ample shade. Ironically, it is right next door to another park that looks about as catch-as-catch-can as it could get. Activities in the park, as opposed to Victoria and the rest of southern Vancouver Island, are somewhat limited. There is a small playground for children. And there's a quarter-mile walk to a lovely, long beach, though you should remember that this is the mid-north Pacific. Swimming is for the hardy (or the fool-hardy). I would have no qualms whatever of returning here, should my travels ever return me to the area. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We came from the U.S. on the ferry from Anacortes, WA and the ferry landing was a great location to get to this RV park. It took us less than 15 minutes once we were through Customs. This is the quietest park I have ever stayed at. Absolutely no traffic noise except what goes in and out of the park. The roads are paved and our site was level and gravel with some low lying weeds. If they invested in some Round Up and new gravel, it would be perfect. That said, it really was a perfect place to stay. The sites were wide and roomy from your neighbor. There is a beach trail that goes to a rustic beach, which is a nice walk. The office staff was very helpful and pleasant and it was easy to get in and out of the park with a big rig. They have ample parking at the office for big rigs, which was appreciated. The wifi was okay but not great. I was able to connect on my phone but never on my laptop. When the park was full it was difficult to get on and stay on, but better when the park was less full. Best times were the morning. No problem with 50 amp service, water or sewer. We did not get cable but were able to use Dish Network satellite. Hwy 17 is close enough for convenience but far enough so there is no noise. It goes north to Sidney easily and south with a longer drive to Victoria. There are seasonal people here but their sites are well maintained and even enhanced with patios etc. We stayed a week and loved it. We'd definitely come back. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We loved the more rural area here and all the local farm stands. There's a dog park on Lochside Dr going north to Sidney. On the west side, it's completely enclosed. On the east it is not. Sidney street market on Thursday night is a must go to. GREAT location for visiting Victoria area and attractions. Take the ferry from Anacortes, WA if coming from the states, as it's close to this RV park and a very easy drive.

Not a lot of options for RV parks in this area, but having said that, this is the best one around. The sites are well spaced and have some shrubs between them for a bit of privacy. I did find the location of the power and sewer hookups a little inconvenient for our motorhome, as the sewer was toward the back of the site and the power was near the center ( this was a pull through ). Everything was well kept and clean, roads were paved, but the sites were gravel and pretty much level. Lots to do here with Sidney and Central Saanich near by....bring your bikes, as you are minutes from the Lochside trail which will take you to Sidney or Victoria. Would have rated this park a bit higher except for the poor condition of the roads and neighborhood you have to go through to get here. Some of the sites toward the bottom of the hill (11 - 15) have a water view. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We originally planned to stay at this campground for 3 nights, but a medical issue extended our stay to 10 nights. The rate shown is the single night rate and is in U.S. dollars, as requested. We found the park to be excellent in all respects. Our level pull-through site had foliage on both sides for some privacy from adjacent campers. Seasonal users, which were a large majority of the park, were in a separate section from transient users. All camping units, including seasonal ones, were in excellent condition and very well maintained. Campground maintenance was excellent. There was little shade on sites, but the cooler weather of fall meant rigs did not get hot. Wi-fi, even with an external wi-fi adapter, was marginal. Victoria was about 12 miles away and the Sidney-Anacortes ferry was conveniently close. We would definitely stay here, were we to visit Vancouver Island again. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Butchart Gardens is nearby and well worth a half day visit. The flowers and other vegetation are outstanding. Victoria is a vibrant city only minutes from the campground and the busy inner harbor is fascinating with large ferries, water taxis, and float planes arriving and leaving.

We're catching Sidney ->Anacortes tomorrow so this was a good choice to overnight. Super efficient in the office, very helpful. Site is nice and large with decorative plantings between sites. Peekaboo view of ocean from our site.

I couldn't find the cable outlet so went to office. A person came by 1/2 hr later and showed me where they'd put it - inside a waterproof duplex plug outlet - duh, why would I look there??!! He said that that and the breakers right up under the top of power "tower" caused him the most call outs. Park is looking at labels to tell people where things are - good idea!

Showers and bathroom in general were spotless! 1 loonie for 5 minutes!

Communal fire ring just outside washroom complex with benches around look like a nice place to sit on a summer evening. We didn't use it. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The price likely reflects proximity to Victoria, otherwise it would be over priced. However, one is still a bit out of town and Victoria is not a place to drive about in a motorhome. Therefore, you need another vehicle for tourism. That said, it is a great location for catching the ferry to Anacortes from Sidney or for a first night coming from the U.S. on the Anacortes ferry, if you are continuing further north on Vancouver Island. The park is on Indian land and one drives through it about 3/4 mile to get there. We had no problems with the locals, as were mentioned previously by other reviewers. The park staff was friendly and efficient. Maintenance personnel were much in evidence and the park was pretty well maintained. In this light, it is as good as any local RV park and much better than most. Sites were reasonably spaced and separated by shrubbery. The one complaint I had was that the gravel used was of a poor quality and included a large percentage of ground, grey dust. Overall, the park was well laid out and included a decent playground near the non-seasonal sites. Seasonal sites were in a separate area but appeared well maintained. Other reviewers have praised the view, but I found it not at all special. Beach access was inconvenient and in general one should come here for proximity to local attractions. WiFi was good, when it worked. We kept being kicked off and it became very irritating. All in all, we will stay there again when taking the ferry or when vacationing in the Sidney area. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with well cared for grounds. If you are looking for a 'Resort' which has lots of facilities this is not the park. I think most people, however, are happy to stay here for the price as it is the only park with services fit to stay in before Victoria. We would stay again waiting for the ferry. Rate is for shoulder season. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park. The permanents are in a separate section. The sites are level and most have a partial view to the water. The only criticism I can offer is that the Wi-Fi is very spotty and not dependable. You have to go near the office to get good Wi-Fi. This RV park is close to Victoria so it is easy to sightsee and tour the area. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 1 month while visiting family. Campsites are large, level, and very well maintained. Had a nice view of the water and the beach was wonderful. Washrooms and showers were spotless, and staff was great. Full timers are in another section with no derelict units. WiFi and TV worked fine. Like previous reports said, look the other way on the way in. We would stay here again; it is the best park by far on southern Vancouver Island. We camped at Oceanside RV Resort in a Motorhome.
