A short drive from the Nanaimo ferry terminals. There are ocean views if you want them or shady forested sites if you prefer that. The area is extremely well maintained.
Some of the ocean view sites are down low with walkable beach access and some are up high with more views. The shady forested sites are great in the heat of summer. Some areas have better WiFi access than others and the people who run the park will give you advice if that’s important to you.
South to Nanaimo or beyond to wine country and Victoria. Or north to Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and the Courtney-Comox valley.
