Very relaxing RV park with an excellent Owner that cares and wonderful staff. The Englishman River is awesome for these hot summer days. The Yurts and cabins are a wonderful rustic touch. The upgrades are coming along now. Can't wait to see them all finished. Great Job the Staff and Management are doing.

We booked a 5 night stay at this RV site to explore the area and chill out at the river and beach. The facilities are reasonable and proximity to the Englishman River a real bonus. The sites by the river are close together offering little privacy. Our stay was great for 2 nights then on the third our new neighbours... More

Nice location off main road in Parksville but far enough not to hear passing traffic. Our second stay there and although they have well furnished cabins clustered in the central area as well as additional hook ups for your own trailers etc, we elected to stay in one of the three available Yurts. The family had a blast, and I... More

Excellent location beside Englishman River & near downtown Parksville. Sites are not spacious. Overall view is marred by semi-permanent structures in centre of park. Bathroom facilities were okay, but one (of 2) showers was old & dirty. A sign requesting that visitors report need for washroom cleaning seemed to be further evidence of neglect. Office staff person friendly.

Booked a 2 bed log cabin initially then requested if a one bed was available as only 2 of us going to visit my cousin in Parksville. No one beds avail upon arrival but once we stepped into Cabin 7 we were thrilled. Brenda at the office was so personable it got us off to a great start for our... More

Me and my friends came to river end after having an awful experience at another campsite and leaving. Riven end couldn't have been a better saving grace for our camping trip. The young woman at the front desk was so friendly ad helpful. We asked if the sites had electricity as we wanted to charge cell phones and she actually... More

We came up for this last weekend for a LAX tournament in Parksville. We stayed in Yurt #2. It was cozy, had a full bath, queen bed that was quite firm, futon, gas fireplace, tv, kitchen with microwave and stove top. It was very comfy. As for location in the park, it was farther away from the kids playground then... More

Riverbend was top-notch in almost all areas. The service was great throughout--from the booking to the time we left. The cabin was also fine: clean, and everything you could reasonably expect was provided in terms of cooking/eating utensils. Beds were fine, although the pull-out couch is only appropriate for younger children. Lots of places to run around/play/ride bikes during the... More

We had a family reunion at Riverbend Resort in July, 2012. It was a fairly large event with 68 of us (from babies to seniors) there for 3 days. From the initial contact through to the completion of the event, Heather and all the staff were pleasant, helpful and professional. Heather asked numerous times what she could do to ensure... More
