“Nice Clean facility close to a low security prison”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights in June, 2014 and few years back as well. It was a nice and new-ish campground for big rigs. You need to pay for showers though. Make sure you bring loonies for the shower. They don't take quarters. Campsites are little tight together, but luckily there are some small trees in between sites for privacy.

We found out that the site was closed to a low security prison. We were a little worry at first, because there was a prison escape last year. But everything was fine during our stay. (I guess prisoners don't escape everyday.) Aside from the fact that it's located close to a low security institution, it's a nice place to stay. Staff are mostly friendly, except the older lady at front desk.

Internet wi-fi is available but very weak. During the evening, it's almost impossible to have any wi-fi signals. No cell coverage neither. Can't run 3G.

Location-wise, it's convenient enough for us. A 10 minutes drive to grocery, half hour to Sooke. The setting was nice with view of the bay.

Reviewed 26 April 2014

Stayed here for about ten days in the summer of 2013. In all our years of trailer/camping holidays this was the best campground we'd ever stayed in. Our site was overlooking the harbour with a wooden deck. We saw sea otters, herons, seals and bald-headed eagles. The campground was immaculate, with clean bathrooms, shower blocks and laundry. Good coffee in the little snackbar and plenty to watch with small boats coming and going. There are plenty of nice walks, bike rides and hikes, plus beautiful beaches nearby. Grocery shopping or eating out require a drive - only the absolute basics are available locally.

Stayed on July 2013 in a motorhome. THe RV sited are nicely designed. The water front sites are a little more expensive but woth every penny. Full hook-up, back-in, views of the marina and the inlet from Strait of Joan De La Foca. The low tide views are magnificent. Place is very clean and Staff in the front office (which is also a shop and grocery store) is very helpful and friendly. There is a MArina and fishing facilities on site, nice coffe shop and it is 30 minutes drive from downtown Victoria.

Room Tip: book a waterfront site very early in advance
