We (4 adults from Europe) are planning a trip with a rented rv in september / october 2007 through Western Canada. Start and end of our trip will be Vancouver. We plan to spend the last week of our trip (28 th of september to 4 th of october) on Vancouver Island, visiting Victoria and the Tofino area.
I was wondering whether you could recommend any campgrounds in these two areas. As we don't have a generator on board of our rv, we will need hook-ups at least from time to time in order to spare the battery. But we are surely willing to do without for one or two nights.
In Victoria we are looking for a campground in reasonable distance of the city (it would be even nicer, if we could get there by public transport). In the Tofino area we are just looking for a nice campground.
I was also wondering whether it will be necessary to make campground reservations at this time of the year. I heard campgrounds in these areas can get pretty busy sometimes.
And what about the ferrytrip to Vancouver Island? Considering we have an overheight and long vehicle and considering we will travel to the island on a friday is it advisable to make a reservation?
I would really appreciate your tips. Thanks!
