Stayed here with family for a week over the August long weekend. The lake was beautiful and the kids loved swimming and paddle-boarding. The on-site snack shack was a well-received reprieve! We were disappointed about operations on four fronts: 1) the facility ran out of Ice unexpectedly on Saturday of the long weekend and replenishment had not been ordered in advance (heard this directly from the staff); 2) Pay shower hot water reservoir emptied unexpectedly for a day, resulting in no shower in the Men's washroom; 3) campsites were very close to one another with next to no privacy, no foliage where we stayed; and 4) Infrequently patrolled public access lead to very, very loud dance music playing from the parking lot in a campground that requests NO amplified music. With the parking lot so close, running right through the campground, it was if I had headphones on. Very loud until late at night. Note: this form indicates this is a hotel - it is not - it is a campground and as such, the questions below are strange.…
The public beach was absolutely jam packed on the weekend. Evening festivities ramped up around 9 each evening and ended when I finally contacted the noise complaint number. Guests swimming and taking selfies, loud music at 1 am was disappointing as I figured the camp host would be more proactive with managing these situations. Zero privacy and washrooms were borderline unsanitary. After paying for a waterfront site, I would expect to not have to cough up a loonie every time I wanted to shower. The check in process consisted of the clerk handing me a piece of paper and told me the “rules” are on the back. All that said, the lakefront sites are unbeatable, relaxing early morning for coffee on the beach and sunset paddleboard sessions. I was in Cumberland for a biking vacation so I could escape the madness during the day. It is what it is. Just know what to expect.…
This campground on the end of Comox lake has average if not a bit smaller campsites, albeit great trails in which to go hiking and decent access to the lake. The adjacent boat launch was busy most of the time.
We love Comox Lake. We camp there yearly and have for over 16 years.Clean sites right on the water.Lots of great Hiking & Bike trails and clear glacier fed lake. Close to town and amenities. Highly recommend.
The lake is stunning and an incredible place to be at any time of the year. Boat launch can be iffy when water table drops and requires some attention/investment to upgrade. Miss the concession stand that remains closed to public. What is the Village of Cumberland (who administers the campground at Comox Lake) thinking? New toilet facilities are appreciated. Request to users of the lake - please take your garbage with you rather than leaving it on our roadside.
Small campsites with lots of marijuana being smoked everywhere. Didn’t appreciate my minor child getting a sex Ed lesson from the neighboring campsite at 2am. No rules are enforced ever. Also they triple billed me and kept passing the buck off to someone else. I was promised a refund within 2 days but 7 days later and still no refund so I’m taking it up with my credit card company. Be careful booking this campground online or on the phone and definitely watch your credit card bill. In all honesty, if you want a family friendly camping experience you’re better off passing this campsite up in favour of a better one. I personally won’t be going back or recommending them to anyone except young kids that just want to party all night.
The sites were a lily small, especially for a group site. but the bathrooms were just redone and were clean every time I went the lake was warm and no one got the itch. The kids had a blast! I think I would go back again
I don’t mind kids running around the campground- it’s part of the summer family fun. Or even the postage stamp sized campsites - I expect that from a commercial campground business. But for crying out loud do you have to stink up the entire campground with your marijuana? No, it’s not legal yet - might as well be - but the stuff smells bad and effects everyone’s campsite. In a day and age where everyone is concerned about offending others I AM OFFENDED when I have to breathe this noxious smoke. This campground and others need to deal with this NOW because when this stuff becomes legal camping will no longer be fun.
It is a beautiful campground but the facilities could be looked after a bit better. Bathrooms were not cleaned often enough and when they did clean them it was the busiest part of the morning when everyone was trying to get in the showers and do their morning business.
booked an overnight stay at the campground with my boyfriend and two kids. We had a large tent, and we ordered 10$ worth of firewood. We ended up switching sites to a different spot, that was actually less expensive. She said when they dropped off The firewood, she would also bring my change—the difference in cost. Around 330pm my firewood was delivered, no change. At around 5pm I decided I would like to purchase more wood, I went down to the office-closed. I called... left a voicemail...no phone call back and no change dropped off. The office hours are not posted anywhere! We were walking by the washroom and a young woman camping alone also was looking for help as she had no picnic table at her site. My boyfriend and I helped her move one from one spot to hers. It was very heavy. She said she was looking for someone to help her—- no help around. After packing up, I went to the office to enquire about my change and the door was open but sign said closed. The host was cooking breakfast and she said it was credited to my cc but when I checked it wasn’t on ( prob takes a few days ). I informed her that she should have communicated that to me, that I called and left messages and tried to get help so many times and no one was around. It was so frustrating! I would not recommend staying here! Someone Else told me, while I was searching for help, that an ambulance came to grab someone and still no one around and no security like they were suppose to have either!…
