Generally, the campsite was decent, and kids enjoyed the playground. It's a more rugged site, so it feels close to nature. Swimming hole is a longer walk than 10 minutes especially with kids (maybe more like 20 on uneven trail, so flip flops not advised),...More

Thank you for the nice review, Sherry. It's always great to have you here. We're starting the preparations for the pig roast this week. We just ordered a 200 pound piggy last week. We can hardly wait, it's our favorite event of the year, I...More

We recently stayed 2 nights at this campground and were pleasantly surprised. The playground and field is great for kids, they showed an outdoor movie for kids one of the evenings and have a great spot along the Nanaimo River for swimming. Not only that,...More

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review. The outdoor movie and popcorn have always been a hit with the kids (and quite a few of the parents, too), and everyone loves the river. We're so lucky to wake up here...More

This is such a great location. Very close to Naniamo and the ferry terminals. The walks around this campground are incredible. They have a beautiful walk down to the river that's perfect for kids. The campground itself is very family friendly and quiet, a perfect...More
