5 Parks near Victoria, British Columbia
Aug 2015 - $43.00
Most sites are small and close together.
Our site was on hill with cedar hedge on both sides on top of rock retaining wall which gave nice privacy. We were able to park our van in front of our trailer but took some doing with slope of roadway and our level site.
Most sites in the park are level and open with some fencing or hedging between some sites. Be prepared to level your rig to some degree.
This is a large park with many f/t residents which kinda gives the feel of a trailer park and not an rv park.
Laundry and washrooms were clean and tidy.
We stayed here for 1 week. We would stay here again perhaps a night or two tho. - DCM/JMB

There are over 300 sites in this park and it is situated under some major power lines. There is a picnic table in each site. The laundry room was large and open. We did not use it or the bathrooms and showers. The sites were too cramped for our liking, the sites are too close together.
Our dogs were attacked by an off leash (they say it ran out unexpectedly) vicious dog. You could tell it was not the first time. We notified the office and are cutting our stay short. We did not get a good vibe from this place anyway. - beach89bum

This park has an interesting mix of pros and cons.
The park is close to all areas of the city. The sites are small, clean, with little privacy and brick patios, picnic tables, and level parking. With the small sites, the roads have a large number of vehicles encroaching on the narrow paved roads. All of the services work well, including the wifi. Staff are helpful and washrooms facilities are well kept except there were no hand drying towels in the men's side and the electric hand drier was broken. Showers are free. A short distance to the east is a large off leash dog area. A trail used mostly for bicycles runs right through the center of the park as well. The park is full of steep hills which is a bit of a pain when walking to the washroom facilities. Unfortunately, there are a number of old ugly units belonging to some full time residents, but the park is quiet at night except for the constant hum of the adjacent highway. Some RVers complain about full timers, but it seems that these parks generally have a tendency to be more quiet than parks with large numbers of weekenders who arrive to party. This park is an example of paying for location rather than amenities. We would stay here again. - Snoet

When we checked into this park we discovered a number of campers were there already and park management had closed of 2/3 of the upper campground (large yellow, steel gates across the road). As a result, the only site we could find was a double one buried in the trees. Since it had been raining this was a cold, dark site. Also, we were now in the lower campground and a kilometer away from the shower house. There seemed to be no reason for this closure. We will not return to this campground. - Living Skies

Love this camp ground!! So much to do! Awesome waterfalls and new playground for the kids and the outside theater always has something going on! The park is also very clean! - rosiemp

Regarding services, this is a typical provincial park, but it's a jewel. This is my first time back in over 30 years, and it's as beautiful and forested as I remembered it. The campsites are huge and separated from each other by native vegetation. And you're less than 30 minutes from downtown Victoria and a short drive o the Butchart Gardens. How cool is that! It's quite crowded in the summer, but after Labor Day it's a and peaceful haven. - lisaloo

We stayed in one of the Premium spots, with a beautiful deck overlooking the marina and the bay. It was our second visit. Since we live in Victoria, it is a short drive to the park. We have found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We had good Wi-Fi, but as others have written, no cell coverage. From the park you can take a very short hike to Lester B. Pearson College, which you can see from the park. From our view site, we enjoyed watching the eagles and seals. We have an inflatable kayak which we launch from the side of the marina and paddle around in the deep sheltered bay. - Joe from Victoria

Nice campground. The sites are well maintained. Hookups were the nicest we've had on our 69-day trip in Western Canada.
Sites are level, clean, wide and long. There is a fire pit and a picnic table.
It's quite a drive from Victoria and the other attractions, but it's worth it.
There is no playground for the kids, but there is a school with a nice playground open to the public about 5 kilometres away.
They say they have wifi, but it was rarely working. Furthermore, there is NO cell coverage in that area.
Older staff are somewhat rude to campers as they seem to tend more to boaters. However, younger staff more than make up for their rudeness. Laundromat could use a good cleanup.
We would recommend and we would stay there again. - Merveilleuse

We have been coming here for years and like this park. However, there is no policy and no restriction on the number of vehicles, occupants and shelters per site. In addition, tents are allowed next to RVs and people use them not just for a couple of extra children but to house additional adults and families. Moreover, there is no prohibition on motorized scooters and the like. Hence, during the summer vacation season and on June and September weekends, this place can be a bit of a zoo. Across from us, there were two sites with a total of six vehicles, two RVs (one suitable for recycling), two tents, a shelter, five bicycles, an air mattress used outside at night, nine adults and six children. Security patrols do exist, but only when crowded conditions prevail. These patrols do not effect the above issues. I recommend this park, but not at the times listed above. If you have stayed here before, you will see that things are slipping and that it is due to lax policies. If you want value and a peaceful stay, avoid being here during heavy use times. - BMonk

Friendly competent management. Showers are free - no time limit. Very quiet at night (and day). Beautiful oceanfront location. Wide fine grain sandy beach facing south. View of the lights of Victoria at night. Ocean beaches in Canada are not privately owned but this might as well be because it is nearly inaccessible to the public unless they come through the resort. Our rate was $42 CAD and I roughly converted it to $33 USD. 10% discount to Good Sam members (we are not). - User3527

We camped at the ocean sites and were disappointed. The smell of seaweed was overwhelming and we had to keep our dog out of the water. Sites are very close together, the bit of grass that had been planted was long gone, wifi was poor despite being close to the clubhouse, restrooms were spotless but very limited - 1 shower, 1 toilet. Sorry but for C$42. I expect more. Despite the above, even in October it was almost full. Nope, we wouldn't stay here again. - K Patrick

This park is situated right on the ocean. There is a very nice natural beach with plenty of very fine soft sand. It would be better if the jetsam and flotsam were removed. This area is prone to sea lettuce washing ashore so at certain times can be a bit smelly. We had an ocean front site (number 6) which was plenty wide with our opposing slides. Water, sewer, and electric were well placed and worked as expected. Free Internet was terribly slow. Not worth the effort as we used our own. Cell service was excellent. Limited channels available over the air and there is no cable. This is a very pet friendly park. Dogs are allowed on the beach! (We did not notice any dog poop anywhere.) There is no playground as such but the beach and a very large grassed play area were well used by children. We paid $52.50 for the Premium Ocean View with a Good Sam discount. We would have given this place a 10 if the sea lettuce had been cleaned up and the Internet was better. - BC Wanderer

Location, locAtion location this has it all. Easy 40 minute walk to downtown along sea wall, paved trail. Small campground, sites are close, 30 amp, excellent water pressure, cAble tv, internet available small fee $5 for 3 days, $10 for week. Watch sea planes, ferries, helicopters, leisure boats activity in the harbour. Park seems to have a few full time residents, but clean and organized. Recycle trash. Only 10 minute drive to ferry terminal for port Angeles and Seattle. Beautiful night skyline visible from rv. I'd stay here again. Very popular spot so book early. - Live Life

This is an okay park if you want quick access to downtown Victoria. You can walk to it from this campsite. Very tight spots. - Ernest

Wonderful stay. Overlooked the harbour in Victoria. Easy access to downtown Victoria with the harbour taxi service. Clean washrooms and sites. Booked already for next year. - jla_vernon
