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

We had such a great experience at the Riverbend Resort. We came into Parksville late in the evening pulling our travel trailer. There were no available campsites in town, and after driving around for a while, pulled into the driveway of Riverbend. The woman who assisted us was extremely helpful and offered us a bachelor cabin at a discounted rate,... More

We rented a Yurt for the first time and it was a great choice for accommodation. Warm and comfortable and had all the perks a hotel would offer from internet to coffee. Just a different way to enjoy your trip. Give Yurts or Tenting a try!

We only stayed one night but would stay again. Room was beautiful and clean with heated floors, stove, fridge, flat-screen TV and fireplace. Couldn't ask for anything more!! Make sure you check out the river with it's sandy beach... Heather and Shawn are very helpful and make sure to please. Also, very close to Parksville and several other ocean front... More
