This place is run like a prison camp and the owners have nothing better to do than yell at customers who go two km over the speed limit. The campground itself is great, but honestly the owners need to chill out.

CedarBeachResort, Manager at Cedar Beach Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for your input. I'm sorry that you feel we are too strict on our speed limit. Being responsible for the welfare of every guest at Cedar Beach is a responsibility we do take seriously.Children walking around or running (as children often do)on their own can be unpredictable. They have little fear, unfortunately that falls on the adults shoulders....

We booked 3 nights in Cabin #15 during our vacation to vancouver island and salt spring island. From my understanding, most or maybe even all of the cabins are owned by third parties and rented out as part of the campground, and is why all of the cabins are different, decorated differently, renovated vs not renovated, etc. We chose Cabin...

Thank you for your valued feed back. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, the cabins are indeed individually owned, they all have their own character and charm. The campsites are also individually owned. We are trying to come up with some ideas to create more privacy between them without putting up big wall type fences. Sometimes...

Me and my partner wanted to have a relaxing break away from the buzz of Vancouver and Saltspring Island seemed the perfect destination.

Has become a Strata complex where owners of individual units rent out their cabins. They also sell RV lots with all amenities. They are close to the beach of St.Mary Lake They also rent out boats with electric motors as regular motors are a no-no because the lake is the largest source of house water. The place is like most...

Thank you for your input. All of our cabins and camp sites are indeed individually owned and have been for quite a few years. We are a co-op property with membership availability. We supply boats to our guests free of charge, but not the motors. If you saw guests with electric motors, they have brought them themselves. It's true that...

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! I very much like how close we are but how far away everything feels once you are in the Resort.
