I needed a place to stay while dealing with some family business. My #1 must have was that they would allow my large dog. In a small, seasonal town, this was a challenge to find. Thank you Riverside resort. My studio room was very basic but also very affordable. In room coffee, tv and bar fridge. Staff were friendly and...

In response to this terrible, inaccurate review, I would like to first of all state that it is totally false and slanderous. Unfortunately, in this era of nameless reviews, anyone with an email address can, conspicuously, say any falsity they desire, for what ever agenda they have in mind. The power of TripAdvisor has given any person the ability to...

This resort has accommodations for all types. We have used the camp ground, the cabins, and the apartment style. On site there is a store, mini golf, waterslides and open areas for ball sports, as well as a BBQ area. Away from the site, you can stroll the beaches of Qualicum...and the sunsets are amazing. . Good value and good...

The cabin was clean and comfortable. It was perfect for me and my dogs to stay for a few nights. Would totally recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing time. Loved sitting by the river access and listening to the water. A couple of restaurants just up the highway makes this a nice stay.

Nice campground. Clean washrooms. Was travelling about on Vancouver Island so only stayed one night. Didn't take advantage of all the amenities but did have a good walk with my dog before carrying on with my trip.

I've driven past the Riverside for years on my way to Parksville so I thought I would give them a try for a weekend escape. It was fabulous! We rented the two bedroom cabin and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed, it felt like home. The really neat thing...
