We spent the weekend at Living Forest to try out our new trailer and we loved it ! It was busy so we were lucky to get a great spot, our site 150 had the most incredible views!
The staff is so friendly and helpful...More
We were here for the month of February. Not exactly camping weather but better than our home town, Edmonton. This is a beautiful, well run campground with helpful friendly staff. Long term tenants get together for potluck dinners, crib, bridge etc. There are trails to...More

So glad you chose to spend some time with us Lynn M. And thank you for taking time to share your positive experience!
It's not tropical (though there ARE palm trees that survive the winters here!), but we are Canada's warmest winter destination and as...More
You wouldn't think you were in a town. Tent sites felt like you had your own space even though the campground is pretty big. Great views of the river. Very professional feel in reception/shop. Very reasonable price - $25 for a tent site for one...More

Thank you for staying with us Peteclark87, and for taking time to describe your experience here for others- most appreciated.
Ever since our dad found this hidden property in the 1980's, where the Nanaimo River greets the ocean, so close to downtown but tucked away,...More
We stayed only one night on our way though, but very much enjoyed it! The sites were big and private. The roads were nice for our kids to ride their bikes around on. We went for a swim in the river and walked out to...More

I hope that the rest of your visit to Vancouver Island was as perfect as your visit to Living Forest SHADJO!
Thank you for taking time to review our park, and I sincerely hope you find time to return and visit us another time-- when...More
I had reservations about staying in such a large campground but from the moment we arrived until we left I never felt that there were many other people around. All the sites are very private and they all appeared to be level and well looked...More

Thank you so much for taking time to tell us of your visit to Living Forest, doglady55. With over 300 campsites, it would be easy to have it feel big and crowded, but because of how we have designed the sites and kept them well...More

Hi Karlee S,
I just saw this now, so sorry about the delayed response! Tents can stay in any site in the park, but typically, tenters book the partial service or unserviced sites, since there are tenting amenities closer to those sites, such as group picnic shelters with dish washup sinks, more bathrooms, lower site fees, and much larger, more private sites. If you visit our website, you'll see the 'PARK MAP' link which has an interactive map that will not only show the different sites and their service category, but also by clicking on any site number an up to date photo of each site will open, so you can see the site and its size and attributes. Below the map is a 365 day availability calendar to show what sites are currently available to choose from.
Hope this helps and thanks for asking!
