Many of Vancouver Island’s campgrounds are bounded by the ocean and offer clear views of the Coast or Olympic mountain ranges.

Enjoy beachcombing, swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking or watching the sun set over the waves. Seeking a forested or lakeside campground? Vancouver Island has those, too.

For convenient camping or RV getaways, look to south and central Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Campbell River. Some sites are within a half-hour’s drive of the ferry terminal.

Or sample campgrounds on the island’s wilder side. Head north (towards Port Hardy and Cape Scott Provincial Park) or west (towards Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve) for rugged, windswept landscapes.
