1. TheDoighouse Earthship
Welcome to theDoighouse Earthship! This unique, off-grid park is nestled in the forest just a 5 minute walk from Qualicum Bay and is conveniently located mid Vancouver Island, 20 minutes to the Old Country Market, less than 30 minutes from Horne Lake Caves. From hikes in the forest or wandering the gardens to workshops and even yoga, this camp spot isn’t just beautiful it’s got a little something for everyone to do. The best part – this beautiful place is pet friendly, so if you have furbabies they are allowed to enjoy the stay with you! But be sure to book your stay far in advance as this stunning location only has 1 designated RV site. Reserve your spot here.
2. Mt Benson View Site
Calling all hikers – Mt Benson awaits! With stunning views throughout, and an even more breathtaking view from the top, Mt Benson is a must-stop for any hike enthusiasts in your family. If you’re an adventure seeker, Mt Benson offers mountain bike and ATV trails too. Stay at any one of the many RV parks near the foothills of the mountain like Westwood Lake campground, where you can also rent boats, fish or spend the day at the beach, or Brannen Lake RV park which boasts over 120 unique sites and is loved by locals looking to reconnect with nature. Keep your eyes and ears open too, you just might be able to spot an osprey, red-tailed hawk, or even hear some local barred owls sing.
3. Sea Change Farm and Nursery
RV camping can be a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and fully immerse yourself in nature. With parks like the Sea Change Farm and Nursery you get the best of both worlds. Park at private campsite, secluded from anyone else, on the edge of a creek ravine, surrounded by forest, but still be within walking distance to Shirley Delicious Cafe… coffee and a view, anyone? Or Spend your day at the French beach, then stop at Stoked for wood fire pizza.
4. Goats and Boats
If you and your family are looking for a simple weekend getaway, filled with simple pleasures, Goats and Boats is the RV park for you. It may not be stocked full with amenities but it more than makes up for it in charm. Situated amongst 40acres of poplar trees, Nigerian dwarf goats, rabbits, ducks and pigs freely roam the grounds making this perfectly peaceful spot a great place to replenish and rejuvenate while cuddling some seriously cute animals. You’ll find hiking trails, beaches, and even go-karting are all within a few minutes from the park.
5. Moon Gate Farms
It’s a well known fact that the RV community is supportive, friendly, and always up for a adventure, which makes our final park on the list, Moon Gate Farms, the epitome of RV camping. With the usual hiking, biking, and water activities on the itinerary, this park offers something extra special too… communal spaces throughout so you can get to know your fellow travelers. While each RV spot has their own private, raised platform, the park boasts a community kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook and serve so you can break bread with your fellow campers. Or hang around the communal fire pit sharing stories and toasting marshmallows. Throw in some farm fresh vegetables picked on site, hot showers, yoga, and a cold plunge in their tub (yup, they have that too), and you may never want to leave.
Prices for these spots vary based on the amenities chosen, granting travelers the freedom to tailor their experience to their preferences and budget.
