This might be the nicest park we've ever stayed in. Immaculate grounds, beautifully landscaped. Level, private sites with good electric, sewer, and water. Easy access to the beach and the highway into town. Friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff. Out site was a litle tight getting into, but one of the staff was available to help me back in. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Where to begin? 1909 restaurant in town, delicious! Chocolate Tofino, don't miss it! Great chocolates and gelato. The Summit Bread Co., great baked goods! Take your pick of beaches nearby, they're all beautiful. Don't forget to visit Ucluelet and walk the Wild Pacific Trail.

The park would have been a reasonable value at half the price. It has a nice office area and the rental cabins nearer the ocean are OK. The sites are narrow, irregular (some) and basic. I had to shoehorn my motor home in and then fiddle about to get enough clearance for the slides. The services were behind me, of poor quality and I needed a sewer hose extension. WiFi worked well, but there was no cable. However, the RV park standard for the whole area is poor and this was the best of a bad lot. My last trip there. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tofino has a nice beach, but not much else if you have already seen whales. The entire area is over priced and the road in is terrible (except in the national park). Expect to cringe on some of the corners and hills, especially with a Class A. If you can do without hookups, stay in the park. Take whatever RV supplies you need with you.

We've stayed here a number of times over the years and with this visit they continue to please. This year they've upgraded their WiFi and it's almost always astoundingly fast - even during 'busy' times. Which is rare in RV parks. The only downside to this park are the clean, but very cold shower rooms. They don't heat them so it's unpleasant showering in a room which is only about 14 degrees. But the showers are free, and there's lots of water to warm up a little. Beautiful grounds, most sites offering rather good privacy, quiet, and astounding service continues. I'd give them a rating of ten, except for the cold shower rooms! Highly recommended. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely the most pristine park we have stayed in on this 9 month trip. The location is breathtaking the landscaping and grounds are immaculate. The beach is a little slice of heaven. Each campsite is well separated by trees . Yes the price is a little steep but when you realize they are giving you free firewood free coffee each morning and the quality of the grounds it is more than worth it. Had fantastic fires on the beach watching the sunset each night. Would definitely return. Thanks. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

The RV sites are located on the grounds of an upscale resort with cabins. The location on McKenzie Beach is spectacular and the resort grounds are beautifully landscaped. There are nice touches like free coffee/tea, papers, DVDs and firewood. The employees are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The restrooms are kept clean even with constant usage from the big groups and families who are coming and going all day from the beach. The negatives are the small RV sites which are not at all big rig friendly and the narrow interior roads. There is no parking control, so people are allowed to park their vehicles on the road in from of their site because the sites aren't long enough to accommodate both camper & tow (or trailer and truck). This makes it even more difficult to navigate the tight interior turns. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tofino is a beautiful place and there aren't many choices camping with an RV here. This park is a mixture of cabins and RV sites. The cabins look really nice. The park is not for big rigs. We camped in a 26 ft Class A and our rig just fit in the spot and we didn't see many that were larger. The spaces are very close together but there is a lot of vegetation to screen sites. Utilities all worked as expected. They have WiFi that actually works. For those that like to build campfires the firewood is free. Just a short walk to the ocean from the campground office. The office is in the rear of the park and when you arrive there is no place to park and no place to turn a big rig around so uncouple your towed before you get into the park and don't pull all the way through if you are driving something big. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is well groomed and landscaped, paved with small private sites. Easy to use with truck and camper or smaller trailer. Staff are friendly and Starbucks coffee free till 1:30. Free firewood but heavy and not dried. Romantic beach and cove with beautiful sunsets when clear. Wifi signal not the best and kicks off after thirty minutes. Cabins also available on site but check the prices. Laundry and shower facilities are fine, very clean but no benches in showers. This is really the best of campgrounds if you prefer the upscale places. Gates close at 11:00 pm and don't open till 7:00 am so you have to drive over those one way spike things if you are early departure types. Will definitely stay here again. Reservations definitely recommended. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Watch for the speed bumps they have installed there is no speed you can go over safely they bounced us pretty good at an idle. They will still serve the purpose if you shave em down a touch. Rent a bike for the nice ride into Tofino, about 3 kliks.

We stayed 3 nights. The staff are super friendly and the sites are excellent. Lots of privacy and level. The roads are extremely narrow and most sites require backing to your blind side. A large trailer would have difficulty. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautifully laid out park. Communal areas well maintained and cared for. Good access to beach. Free coffee every morning. We enjoyed drinking it while looking out to sea! Wi-Fi patchy but just OK.

Sites are well separated and felt private. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful rv park right on a lovely beach. Many paddle boarders enjoying the waters, even at end of October. Paved roads, crushed gravel sites, internet worked just fine for us on site 45. No TV cable or aerial, but enjoyed DVD movies. Water pressure excellent. Park not overly light at night, need flashlight. Lots of beautiful rental cabins on site. Suggest you book early for rigs 32 ft and larger; not all sites accommodate larger units. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely playground for kids. Very pet friendly. This is a top notch RV park and best in area. Beautiful landscaping thorough out park. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is actually very nice. The staff was super friendly and helpful, but... We expected a little bit more out of the so-far-more-expensive-park we had visited during the last week in BC. Nice facilities, but it was pitch black in the evening through the pathways. Then, the toilets were clean and taken care of, but not up to the standard of that price range. We had seen better with a cheaper price. The laundry room was a bit "tired". Instead of a "lost & found" box full of forgotten socks, i would suggest to place a small book shelf with paperbacks or alike.

But , it is very close to Tofino and as i said, the staff at the reception were great. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites are full service (30 amp) intended for rigs under 30 feet with a few larger sites. Most sites are very private in deep shade. The resort is a 2 minute walk to the beach for watching surfing, storms or sunsets. Free Starbucks coffee in the morning, free firewood for burning in the fire pits. No cable or over-the-air TV but great library of free movie DVDs. Staff are very helpful with finding good food and local activities. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

An excellent park that is extremely well manicured. It also has around 30 cabins for rent. All the sites are private with fire rings and a picnic table. Location is great being right on the ocean for long beach walks. It's on MacKenzie beach. If you want to go to Chesterman Beach, that is about a 20 minute easy walk. Location is close to Tofino as well as we biked into town on a paved bike trail that follows the highway. Safe. It is a 3 km bike to town. Free Starbucks coffee every day 8:30 - 1 pm. Free movie rentals, and lots of selection. We tried the showers once but they were cold. Supposedly some issue that got resolved. Only thing we didn't like was their free Wi-Fi. It was slow and the staff told us and it only lasts for 30 minutes, then you have to re-log in. For the amount they charge, a change to this policy would make this a "premium" resort in our eyes. We stayed 3 nights. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well-kept park beside the ocean, with all facilities clean, organized, and maintained. A short stroll takes you to the beach where you and your dog can run and play across a huge sand beach. In some places you can have your private off-leash park. The office/clubhouse/coffee bar is amazing with cable TV, free coffee in the morning, and free DVDs in the evening. The downsides to this park are the small sites and narrow roads. During your reservation they ask your RV length so be sure to say that you have a 20 foot truck in front of your trailer. This is important when you try to back into your site. The couple beside us used an hour to wiggle their trailer in to position. We would stay here again. We camped at Crystal Cove Resort and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
