We needed a place to stay as we are between homes having just moved to Vancouver Island. I really like to hosts they are friendly and very accommodating. Although the facilities are dated everything works and the facilities are really clean. All the sites are gravel but they are level and lots of room between each other. Definitely recommend. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

this is Victoria BC one of the most interesting beautiful cities in Canada, every weekend there is an event planned for the city during the summer months. Plan on spending a few days as there is so much to do and see

This is a city RV park, with a majority of permanent sites. It is also one of few options for a tourist looking for proximity to Victoria. Despite many permanent residents, not all of whom appear prosperous, we have never had a negative issue on numerous stays. Transient residents are grouped in the best area and the staff is efficient, helpful and pleasant. It was disappointing to find that they have gone to a cable box system, that was essentially ineffective for our motorhome's setup. We really had no cable, but were able to get a few channels over the aerial. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

You are in the city of Victoria! There are too many great things to see and do to list here. For bicycle types, a major bike path runs right by and will take you into the downtown easily. Finally, try and get a site on the other side of the hill from the highway - you will thank me for this advice.

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. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The bad: Expensive for what you get. Right next to a highway...although it's more of a steady drone, so not too disturbing. A lot of permanent trailers/motorhomes...some in very rough condition. Fairly far from downtown Victoria. Most of the sites have little or no privacy. The good: fairly flat sites. Laundry room was clean. Children's park looked nice. All in all, I would stay here again for a one-night on the way to somewhere, but not for an extended stay. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We used this park due to its proximity to the ferry for Port Angeles. The overnighter section of the park is consistently quite acceptable and a good base for local activities, as it is centrally located. Staff were friendly and efficient. We will return when we are passing through, but would pick another park for extended stays to the area. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly, helpful staff. Despite being over a hill, sites (while gravel) were reasonably level. A good spot when passing through or seeing Victoria (transit right to park). Train tracks right through park, but the rails are rusty. Nothing really special, but nothing really negative. Pricy, but right in the city. Will be back when passing through.

We really liked our site with the patch of grass for the kids to play on and it provided some nice shade. The kids also really liked the playground (even though it was a bit old). I really appreciated that the playground area was fenced in. It was very quiet here. The sites were level and easy to get in & out of. The staff was very friendly & helpful here. I was surprised at how many "full-timers" there were here, but they kept the sites clean and it seemed they were all in one specific area. It is also close enough to walk to the bus line that takes you right into downtown so you didn't have to drive, which was nice. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park roads are paved and most sites are gravel with a brick patio and table. Our site (#7) did not have a brick patio and it was not level. Privacy shrubs separated the sites. Mature evergreens and rock wall borders for the terraced sites. Friendly and informative staff in the office helped us get around Victoria. Transit bus stop is an 8 minute walk away. Cable TV channels extensive and most were clear. Wi-Fi signal strong. Fairly quiet as no trains use the track (that runs through the park) anymore.

Large park in the city. Friendly staff and the park is reasonably well maintained. While transient sites are fine, some sections of park could use a clean up. Overall OK, but location is the main plus. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Well laid out for the number of campers. We camped in a 32 footer and there wasn't much room to park our truck. Even though you are close to the highway, you had no problem sleeping. Laundry was .75 cents for a wash and approx $1.25 for drying. WiFi, which reached your site, was $2 for 24 hours. Cable TV was included in fee, which is good, as our satellite couldn't get a signal as is had to point right at the few trees that are in this park. It's a good park to stay to get around Victoria.

We stayed here for 4 nights and would return. This is a very large park and so things such as shade, hook-ups, etc., vary throughout. The laundry facility, restrooms and showers that we saw were very clean and usable. The park is a little crowded, hence the "8" rating rather than "10". The staff at the front desk varies in terms of helpfulness, but that is to be expected. Overall, they were at least OK. You can catch a bus into Victoria at a bus stop close to the park, so that is good if you don't have a car. I was able to use my Verizon phone. We would stay here again. Be aware that the round trip ferry ride from Port Angeles for 2 adults and a 31ft motorhome was $300: pricey. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one month while my mom had treatment at the cancer clinic. The park is large and Big Rig friendly. As they say in Real estate, everything is about Location. There are some very nice areas and some horrible ones. They have a lot of permanent sites with some older Rv's and multiple run down cars. The park is so large there are lots of choice. It is clean, well run and we found the staff to be friendly with easy access to the highway and close to Costco. They have big pull through sites for short term stay. If you want to stay longer I would drive around the park and choose the area. This park is usually full so a reservation is a must. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
