    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

    Very nice Camping resort. We had a pull-through site which was quite roomy. Close to town and the Duke Point B.C. Ferries terminal, which was our main reason for choosing this location. Next visit we will choose an Oceanside site.More
