Beach front camping in Tofino?

Has anyone found beach front RV camp spot that will fit a 15' Trillium?
Also, any members on here from Nanaimo?

The only one I know that has some rv sites right on the beach is Bella Pacifica
Welcome to Bella Pacifica Campground but i know that the ones they have are often booked up a year in advance but it never hurts to try! :-) Its by far my fav options when in Tofino. Some of the beach front sites at the end are a tight fit so you may have to do some hand moving to get into them due to tree locations.

I have also stayed at Crystal Cove Resort although none of there camp sites are right on the beach (they have some cabins there) but the resort is on beach front property and its only a a short walk through the rv park to the beach. That was a very upscale campground as far as facilities go but the sites are pretty small. They do have a nice beach as well,

Hey NanaimoWill...we're from Nanaimo too.

As for oceanfront campsites on Vancouver Island, we had waterfront spots at Saratoga Beach RV, Beachcomber RV, and Alder Bay RV so far this year. At Westbay RV we had a harbour and city (Victoria) view from our site.

If you're happy beside a lake, you'll find even more I'm sure.

It's nice to have front and back windows to capture the views; have you noticed that so many new trailer designs don't have them?

thanks to Carol's recommendation, we stayed at Bella Pacifica. Great place to park the rig and explore Pacific Rim Natl Park. But no privacy or trees between sites.

Another beach front option I recently discovered is called Mussel Beach. Its not in Tofino but it is a good location for day trips to visit Tofino. Its more wilderness camping than Bella Pacifica and its located on Barkley Sound and you look across at the Broken Islands. Maps of Mussel Beach Campground near Ucluelet and Tofino on Vancouver Island, British Columbia

About $30 a night for beach front and no electrical or running water (you needed to bring your own). They do have showers though they charge $3 for them.

The beach is pretty nice but not IMHO as nice as the one at Bella Pacifica. Although you do have a much higher chance of seeing grey whales from your campsite.

To get to it you need to turn off the Port Alberni to Tofino highway at the main junction and travel about 15 miles on a gravel road.

Some folks we met at Bella Pacifica wanted more wilderness camping and they moved to Wya Beach (Native Canadian owned) just north of Ucluelet
Welcome to Ucluth, Ucluelet, BC | Wya Point Ucluelet BC Campgrounds & RV Camping Vancouver Island We visited them there -- rustic, no utilities, but showers and isolated with the beach almost to themselves.
We loved Vancouver Island as you can see in our Picasa album.
