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

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
