You wouldn't think you were in a town. Tent sites felt like you had your own space even though the campground is pretty big. Great views of the river. Very professional feel in reception/shop. Very reasonable price - $25 for a tent site for one...More

Thank you for staying with us Peteclark87, and for taking time to describe your experience here for others- most appreciated. Ever since our dad found this hidden property in the 1980's, where the Nanaimo River greets the ocean, so close to downtown but tucked away,...More

We stayed only one night on our way though, but very much enjoyed it! The sites were big and private. The roads were nice for our kids to ride their bikes around on. We went for a swim in the river and walked out to...More

I had reservations about staying in such a large campground but from the moment we arrived until we left I never felt that there were many other people around. All the sites are very private and they all appeared to be level and well looked...More

Thank you so much for taking time to tell us of your visit to Living Forest, doglady55. With over 300 campsites, it would be easy to have it feel big and crowded, but because of how we have designed the sites and kept them well...More

We spent a couple of nights in this campground last summer. The Oceanside campsites were excellent. The view of the ocean, the city-lights and light of the ships, the serenity of the place is something to be experienced to appreciate. More important you are so...More

Very nice Camping resort. We had a pull-through site which was quite roomy. Close to town and the Duke Point B.C. Ferries terminal, which was our main reason for choosing this location. Next visit we will choose an Oceanside site.More
