Seal Bay RV Park is one of Vancouver Islands finest, privately owned, fully serviced, year-round campgrounds. In a park-like setting, all sites are either 30 or 50 amp and also have water, sewer and cable connections. For your convenience wifi is available along with Shaw Go. The washrooms are heated, clean and showers are coin operated. A coin operated laundry is also on site. Wilderness tenting sites are open during the Summer months. If you are looking to get away for some peace and quiet this is the place to be, no pool, no playground. There is a beautiful pond stocked with rainbow trout and fly-fishing is available some of the time. A trail directly into Seal Bay Nature Park gives you an opportunity to go biking or hiking and in 30 minutes you can be down at Seal Bay. An ideal place to base your stay in the Comox Valley, 10 kms from either Courtenay or Comox.

After a two week visit at Seal Bay, we were already delighted with our experience here - but when our new RV dealership left us stranded there without the promised move to our next location, we were completely lost & bewildered. The staff at Seal Bay jumped to our rescue, with office staff tracking a vacant site for us to relocate to temporarily while site staff moved our 5th wheel between spots for us! We were calmed, assisted, and could not have felt more looked after. They rock!

Love all the wood carvings. Very nice layout lots of room. All full hookups. Not far from Comox and close to the Ferry to Powell River. Very quiet and off the road, also the property has lots of mature trees. Must be close to the airport by the number of planes you see though they are not noisy.

We have just returned from spending 5 days at Seal Bay and can’t say enough good things about our stay there. From reservations, check in and our time in the park. This was our 8th time staying with them and we will be returning again next season 😍

We have stayed at Seal Bay every summer and fall since buying our RV 3 years ago and plan to continue to do so as long as we can. The park is beautiful and so well cared for. Regarding a previous review which I read we saw no standing dead trees anywhere that could cause us a problem. The owner is constantly working at making the park a beautiful and friendly place to be. When we go camping with our group we use the group camping sites that are clean, level and large enough for any of our units. The staff makes sure that every camper has a good experience and they go out of their way to help whenever needed. In response to a comment that I saw regarding aggressive dogs, pets are welcome and we have never had a problem with our dog or anyone else's dog while camping there and I certainly don't believe that the cell towers cause the dogs to be aggressive. The campground is close to shopping so it's only a short drive to stock up on anything that we need or may have forgotten to bring. The owner will not hesitate to remove a camper who is causing trouble for others and goes out of his way to make sure that everyone has a good experience in his park. All in all I would consider this park one of the best campgrounds on Vancouver Island and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great camping experience. One of the very best on Vancouver Island.

We come back to Seal Bay year after year and it never disappoints us. Owners and staff are great. Washrooms and club house are clean. We are already booked for two weekends next year. They accomodate our group. Nice walking trails near by. Quiet area to ride bikes.

We were a Seal Bay RV Resort 4 times this year and it is one of the best on the island. Very friendly and accommodating. For group camping they provide free fire wood The wooded area surrounding the resort is fantastic for walks. Definitely recommend it.

We will not again stay here. While we would not have chosen to be put into the fish bowl of a group site, it was lucky as there were standing dead, danger trees throughout the treed sites. Any of them could fall during a wind storm, so common on the Island. if you are EMF sensitive, you do not want to stay here as there is a huge cell tower right next to the campsites and WIFI repeaters at every 3rd site. Cell towers provide a good income to the property owner. While there, several people remarked how their dogs were inexplicably irritable and aggressive. Recycling was restricted to those items for which deposits are returned. No plastics. Despite being spitting distance to a cell tower, texts and emails from my phone were blocked even with data, until I purchased WIFI. The trash bins were overflowing for 3 days before being emptied, potentially attracting bears which then can become habituated and then killed for being a 'nuisance.' Overall, a poorly run campground with an obvious priority of generating income rather than a balance of interest in business, safety, environmental stewardship and a pleasant guest experience.

Everything about this campground was excellent. Large sites with trees. Very peaceful place. 10 or so minutes from Courtney. Beside Seal Bay park full of walking trails. Fenced dog park area was a bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful at check in. You do have to pay for wifi if you want it. It is per device. Considering the cost of staying here I really don't see this as an issue.
