thanks Doug...

I added your comment to my "west coast page"....it prints on one page....summary of what transpired on this thread...with other info...


Tofino / Ucluelet

Bella Pacifica is a good choice - especially if you are able to score one of the sites right down on the beach, have stayed there many times. Need to book way in advance Ė http://www.bellapacifica.com/ Mackenzie Beach Road, 250-725-3400, ($34-54)

Crystal Cove Resort (http://www.crystalcove.ca/tofino-rv-park-camping) is located right on the water so its an easy/short walk to the beach but sites are on the small side and few if any actually have a water view. They have cabins for rent down at the water. Itís probably the highest end of the campgrounds - very clean campground with lots of amenities. So pricing is high. Hellesen Drive, 1-877-725-4213, ($50-62)

Pacific Rim National park also has camping but again you need to book early and the sites are not on the water. I have noted the park does often have vacancy signs out if you are there mid-week. If you get in line early in the day you *might * get in without reservations.
Green Point Campground 1-877-737-3783 ($25 + 8pp per day?)

There is also a campground at the Long Beach Golf Course (http://www.longbeachgolfcourse.com/#!camping/ch8j). VERY rustic and probably the most run down of your options in the area but itís also the cheapest. If youíre simply looking for an inexpensive spot to park the trailer close to Tofino it worksÖÖÖ 250-725-3342 ($32-42)

An option between the most expensive and the least expensive & within an easy drive to Tofino is Surf Junction (http://www.surfjunction.com). Most of the sites are fairly large and lots of trees for privacy. The do have power at many of the sites. Itís located right between Uclelect and Wickaninish Beach - 8km either direction. Itís also not located right on the beach though.
250-726-7214Ö($25-40)

For something different is the Torquart Bay area Ė itís on the beach and a great spot if you are into Kayaking as itís only an hours paddle out to the Broken Islands. Really rough but it was closed down a few years ago due to some issues with the water supply. I understand they have built a new campground called Secret Beach (http://www.coastandkayak.com/secretbeach/index.html) 250-726-8349Ö.($20)

Suspect it will be pretty rustic and popular with the kayakers and fishermen as well. Its about an 8 mile drive up a gravel road to get to it but the road is very do able with a trailer. The turn off is off the main highway about 10 miles before you get to the Tofino/Ucluelet junction - its on the left heading west. There are signs but its easy to miss due to being just a gravel road.

If you are wanting more wilderness camping on the beach is Mussel Beach (


There is also a campground right in downtown Ucluelet (http://www.uclueletcampground.com/index.html) is a handy location but its again pretty run down and not really wilderness camping. The photos on their website make it appear a lot better than it really is. 250-726-4355Ö($25-45)

I love Pachina Bay. I got to Pachina via Cowichan Lake and the forestry roads. The Bamfield Rd out of Port Alberni is definitely smoother. Kissinger Lake at the West end of Cowichan Lake, a wonderful little lake about 20Km of gravel road past Youbou.

If you are wanting more wilderness camping on the beach is Mussel Beach - again itís a bit of a drive from Tofino but an easy day trip. Its a popular campground for the Tofino locals. No power or water. Itís a forest road going in - which is partly paved but mostly a graded gravel - easy to pull on. View from campground is the Broken IslandsÖ.
