RV Campsites on Vancouver Island

RV Campsites on Vancouver Island
Vancouver Island, British Columbia, offers beautiful scenery, beaches, wildlife, rainforests and recreation opportunities. The traditional culture of the First Nations people on the island provides amazing art, and the temperate rainforests are some of the oldest in the world. Many ferries run from Vancouver and Seattle, making it easy to access with your RV.

Pacific Rim

Situated on the west coast of the island, Pacific Rim National Park is one of the most pristine wilderness areas in North America. The best way to access Pacific Rim is by staying in either Tofino or Ucluelet, which bracket the Long Beach Unit of the park. Ucluelet Campground offers full, partial or no hookup sites. They can also offer you several options for activities in the area, including hiking, beach walking, and even whale watching. Campsites are situated with views of the harbor.

Victoria is an essential jumping-off point for any RV trip to Vancouver Island. Home to many attractions, this historical city is not to be missed. For those planning to arrive in Victoria and pick up their RVs, Beachcomber RV Park offers RV rental on site. Just 15 minutes outside of Victoria, Beachcomber is a great compromise between city access and beachside camping on the island.
