We stayed here last August so this review is terribly late. Visited Hornby on a whim and happened to get the last camp spot at Fords Cove and were really pleasantly surprised. The Tribune Campground seems to get the most attention due to it's closeness to the main beach, but this place is much nicer in my opinion (and the...

Had a really pleasant stay here at Ford's Cove. A last-minute overnight stay at Ford's Cove after a great dive weekend next door at Hornby Island Dive Center. I was pleasantly surprised by our off-season cabin rental. We knew it would be rainy, as is typical for this time of year, but the cabin was a GREAT size, had a...

I arrived late and just off-season (as a matter of fact, it was Canadian Thanksgiving) and was very lucky that there was 1 cabin left, I took it. Rate was very good, cabin was just amazing. Clean comfy bed, kitchen had everything I needed and much more, deck, hot shower, updated nice bathroom, what a find ! I can't wait...

Third year in a row and not disappointed. The cabin was very clean (as usual) with friendly staff who do their job well. The three days were incredible with the store handy where locals gather and include visitors cheerfully. The great fish and chip wagon is a must !!.Forget the diet-your on the Island. Words do not spell out the...

We came with another family, the adults stayed in the cabin and the kids slept in a tent and this worked out great! The cabin is well equipped and cozy. The general store is well stocked and has a espresso machine! We enjoyed the peace and quiet and Hornby island is a lovely place to visit. Next time we will...

We love to return to Ford's Cove. Already stayed in a cabin with friends some years ago and in June we came for the second time to camp in our van. We got a great spot with electric hook up and were very pleased how long the hot water kept running in the shower. We truly enjoyed this peaceful campground...

As the weather forecast for our annual mountain biking weekend was faltering, we decided to book Ford's Cove at the last minute. Not knowing what it would be like and only visiting the marina previously, we were unknowing to what lay ahead. To our surprise, the cabin was clean, well supplied and even had water treatment. It was an affordable...

We just spent four nights camping at Ford's Cove and can't imagine a better location for ocean views, beautiful sunsets, and quiet tenting amongst the large old growth forest. Fire pits and nice sized tenting sites, an area for lawn sports, super clean washrooms/showers, chickens to give our food scraps to, and even some live music on the lawn (Tuesday...

We just spent 3 wonderful days on Hornby Island and were so pleased to get the chance to end up at Ford's Cove campground! It was our first time on the island, and just happened to book at Ford's cove, and it was definitely a great choice. Very friendly staff, nice sites, clean bathrooms, quiet, beautiful setting for sunset views...

Our four night stay here was as good as it gets. The store is very well stocked and has excellent prices and a great Americano. Staff were approachable and helpful, but not clingy. We had the best campsite and enjoyed the sounds of other families having fun, nothing too loud or too crammed together. If you are looking for something...

“Try to get a waterfront cabin if you can. Also, some cabins appear to have a fireplace but ours did not, maybe call to find out which ones.”

“There are front cabins that face the shore albeit up high. Regardless, the smell of the saltwater is close to all cabins.”
