We just had our Family Reunion (100+) here. The pavilion was fabulous - excellent kitchen facilities, great washrooms, great projection and sound devices, lots of tables and chairs and lots of places for RV's to plug in. The gardens were lovely! Kolleen (our host) was so welcoming and always ready to answer questions. The price was reasonable and the venue... More

We had our wedding at Chemainus Gardens. So amazing!!! We had the whole place from Friday to Sunday and it was so affordable. Very pleased with the experience. The guests were able to camp behind. The hall which was nice. The hall rental included tables and chairs which kept rental costs down.

The gardens are okay but by no means well maintained. The lawn was not cut upon arrival and only done after we indicated we were staying (we were attending a function on the property). We essentially paid $42 for a place to park. The washrooms were locked up overnight so there was no bathroom access. I would expect to pay... More

This is a campsite in desperate need of repair. Most of the daily sites have been used up by long term crappy looking old trailers. It has tremendous potential. There is a large area up front that could be better utilized, to keep short term RVers away from the long term/permanent trailers and mini homes. The website contact form doesn't... More

I stayed here with many friends in the group camping area. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. The grounds are well maintained in a beautiful setting with the ponds and landscaping. I enjoyed talking to some of the year-round park model home residents and they were very welcoming. I would recommend this campground to all those who want... More

My significant other and I really enjoyed our stay here, and will definitely be back next summer for a quiet and peaceful getaway. We have stayed at a few different places on the island and this place really is unique and stands out in its beauty within the natural surroundings.

Everyone at Chemainus Gardens was welcoming and kind! The scenery was beautiful and I couldn't have loved my stay more than I already do. My kids had tons of room to roam around and have fun while my wife and I relaxed and enjoyed our holiday :)

There's a reason there are no up to date photos of the RV spots themselves. The woman at the office was lovely, as was the garden immediately after the gate. That was where the loveliness stopped. We then drove through a row of permanent housing that looked like crosses between caravans and beach huts, got a lot of weird looks... More

I stayed for one night and found it to be a very welcoming experience. This park has new ownership and they've done a lot of work to the property -- bringing out the natural beauty. There are numerous specimens of unique trees and plants. RV Parks don't get closer to nature than this.
