We were in Port Alberni in the holidays and were going to camp at Sproat Lake but it turned out to be full. We happened to see a sign on the side of the road directing us to Arrowville Riverside Campground. The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us a few alternatives as to where to park the...

Because the owners also run an Organic Farm on their 77-acre property, there are no sewer hook-ups in the campground, nor a dump station. But, that's really a small inconvenience since the Canadian Tire near downtown Port Alberni has a dump station that people can use for free. We found this campground to be quiet and peaceful. There's a trial... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we're glad you stayed with us. Also thanks for mentioning our organic farm - if you come at the right time of year, you can pick your own raspberries at a great price, or in the autumn you can pick pumpkins. I'm happy to report those salmon have been picked... More

Moderately priced, far more spacious and private than a hotel, meticulously clean and a friendly and accommodating staff. quick access to fishing and swimming. There was also a family friendly atmosphere with goats and rabbits for kids to see.

Great family atmosphere, great cabins, river fun for everyone. Our kids had a great time getting donkey rides and my son was thrilled with the skate board ramp. Owners had great stories. ice cream cones and candy to boot! Takes me back to the old days.

For anyone looking for a secluded getaway you better check the jacuzzi window as you can read the lettering on someones tee shirt standing outside the jacuzzi from outside the window, the campground owners son was staying in a camper 5 ft away from that window, and a seasonal transiant was 15ft from him, the Bbq was not useable as...

Thank you for staying with us, I'm glad you found our cottage clean and comfortable. All feedback is important to us, be it good or bad. I'm sorry that you didn't feel as though you had privacy in the Jacuzzi. Because of your input, we have installed an additional privacy shield on the glass. We also have a new head... More

We’ve been largely disappointed by Port Alberni’s accommodations in the past so were pleasantly surprised to discover Arrowvale Farm’s comfortable cottage. Location and farm: located some 10 minutes drive from Port Alberni, the farm covers 7 acres of land including over a kilometre of prime Somass River frontage. Not only will fishermen be happy here, so will kids and animal... More

We have been camping at arrowvale multiple times over the years, in a few different spots around the campground and have never been disappointed! And the fun they provide all year round for different holidays is excellent and fun for the family! The farm on one side and campground on the other provides a lot of stimulation for the kids,...

I've spent the last week at arrowvale awaiting the arrival of my son to be born. I've loved the realness of this place, the river trail, birds, and peace. The campsites are great and the cottages full of island charm. I thank the Collins for sharing this jewel all the while running a full time farm. Truly inspiring.

I've stayed at Arrowvale campground on numerous occasions both on business and for pleasure and love it! The working farm setting is great. We've camped a few times and have found the campground quiet and comfortable. The cottages are beautiful. They offer all the basic amenities and a Jacuzzi tub to boot. I recommend staying at Arrowvale any day! Sure... More
