I have reserved a campsite for two nights and my receipt said i would be paying a $10 reservation deposit towards to stay and paying the reaming $63 upon arrival. However I was charged the full $73 to my credit card. I fell ill prior to my trip and am out $25 now because of the reservation fee plus cancellation... More

Unfortunately it started to rain soon after our arrival but that of course is no fault of the campground. Bathrooms were tidy, showers $1 have to hurry to get all your 252 parts washed. They are open air - so does get chilly with the shower curtain sticking to you. They recycle only items worth money- no paper or organics.... More

It's hard to characterize Bella Pacifica. We have been visiting for years and usually try to make it at least twice a year. The location is marvellous, right on an open ocean beach in a temperate rain forest area. On a sunny day it is heavenly; on a rainy day it is pretty soggy. But hey, you can't create a... More

Overall a great experience, we absolutely loved Tofino. Mackenzie beach is gorgeous. The campsites here are hit and miss. Some are very secluded and large and some are tiny with tons of foot or road traffic. If you go during busy season, absolutely reserve ahead of time and the front desk staff are pretty good about telling you which sites... More

The best about this camping is its location. The beach was about 1 minute by foot from our camping spot and had a great Sunset. However, there were lots of sand flees and got bitten, the other times I wore closed shoes. The camping is quite big and the camping spots are small. I liked that there was lots of... More

My first interaction with Bella Pacifica staff was so incredibly unwelcoming and rude that I was genuinely in shock for a few minutes, that is until my second interaction with staff, after that I was just pissed off. Treated myself and my group like we were criminals looking to rip them off (paid for 3 bundles of firewood (turned out... More

Very popular campsite. Nicely laid out- each site is surrounded by trees and has a bench. The ground is very hard- tricky to get those pegs in. Access to the beach is easy. I found the showers hit and miss. I didn't mind the coin operated system- but the fact it was hit or miss if you got hot water... More

Each year my hubby & I pack up our tent, and leave landlocked Alberta for the coast. We found Bella Pacifica last year, and now it's our go to destination for our trips. We book early (October 1) to ensure we get our beachfront spot of choice & then we countdown to the day we get to leave! The campground... More
