We normally try and camp oceanfront, but on a busy May long weekend we ended up taking leftovers and ended up by a river. This time we stayed at the last available RV site at Riverbend, and really enjoyed it. We had a nice quiet RV spot with 30 amp service, up against the fence, and overlooking Englishman River. There... More

We stayed for one night back in November and absolutely loved it! It was clean and comfortable with a very cute electric fire place. Can't wait to bring my kids for a weekend away to enjoy the park and fire pit.

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
