What others wrote is true...The facilities are very clean; The staff come to rake debris from sites regularly; The park affords nice views; and Wifi worked well.
HOWEVER there is more to tell:
The campsites are close together with dirt, rock and dead grass. There are no plants or landscaping in the campground and few trees, so not a pretty place to camp, particularly for the price (this is why we rate the location "poor" - it is not nice IN the campground). The guests are mostly locals from Campbell River. The campground is not protected for the strong ocean wind. The west side of the campground is flanked with a mobile home park.
And... Monica is RUDE, she doesn't know how to have a pleasant conversation and blames other guests who have complained about her poor behavior. When you see her on the property she greets you with a complaint about other campers. When she answers the phone she is unfriendly and truly seems put out. She doesn't take accountability for her angry demeanor, making this an unpleasant place to stay. We should have known this from the first terse telephone conversation when making our reservation... things go downhill from there.
If you are traveling from off-island, seeking a beautiful place to stay with friendly staff, and enjoy meeting other well-traveled campers, keep looking. We will never stay here again.
We would recommend instead staying at Jinglepot (http://www.jinglepotrv.ca/) or Living Forest (http://www.livingforest.com/) campgrounds in Nanaimo, or Elk Falls Provincial Campground (http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/elk_falls/) in Campbell River.
