Tofino phone and power bank charging

Hi all, I’m camping in tofino and the site has no power. Are there any places that will allow you to recharge your phone or a power bank while you eat (ie restaurant) or hang out there (ie library)? Thanks!

Most people use the plugs in the bathroom, but yes, that's camping! No power.

Contact the Tofino Visitor Centre. They may have suggestions.

I call it internet detox

I go for a walk on the beach to connect to nature (-; leaving chaos behind recharging my human batteries

Welcome to Trip Advisor Heather!

https://virl.bc.ca/branches/tofino/

Here is the link for the library, and with a good map showing its location. Check the hours carefully though! Closed three days a week, and limited hours. Also, note that the library will close for an hour too, and then reopen (Wednesday and Thursday).

I wish! I need my power bank to charge medical equipment unfortunately. The phone recharge would just be a perk.

A camp host at a BC Park once offered to charge the battery of my mobilty scooter

For a medical device I would ask the campground before u go to see if they can accommodate u with your medical device
