I just returned from four days of camping at Pachena Bay and I almost cried when we left this morning - from happiness. I think a lot of the good reviews must be written by RVers. My husband and I made the mistake of tenting at Pachena Bay. The people we were with had an RV. First, we were situation... More

This campground is in an idyllic location but the customer service leaves much to be desired. I showed up last week with a reservation and was made to wait 3 hours (until well after 4pm) to get a site as the previous guests has not yet vacated. i was told that they could not relocate me as they were "fully...

Lovely campground, beautiful beach and kind friendly staff. We enjoyed a fabulous family vacation. Must travel a rough logging road to find this amazing gem. Beware lots kids come for the weekend to party, the noise never kept my family awake but we were further away from the party crowd (other campers were complaining).

This was my first trip to Pachena Bay and Bamfield and after visiting I cannot believe that I had been there before. The campground is nice though the washrooms are a bit dirty, still who can complain when there is water and flushing toilets. If you are the showering type the ones in the "T" section are quite a hike... More

Pachena Bay Campground is perfectly situated next door to the start of the West Coast Trail. I needed a night to camp before my early start on the trail the next morning and the guys there set me up with a site close to the beach. The spot couldn't have been better. The washrooms were clean and water was easy... More

After working a summer in Bamfield, I discovered the beauty that is Pachena Bay. This is a mini-Long Beach with a beautiful white sandy beach, clean ocean water and views that stretch for miles. You can hear the waves crashing from any campsite on the grounds, but the ones closest to the beach are the best. The staff is friendly... More

The road out to Bamfield from Lake Cowichan had just been graded so it was a nice trip on a gravel logging road. The campground was very nice with sites on or near the beach. Lots of access from the campground to the beach. The beach is fabulous. Washrooms were clean, firewood for sale on site. Bamfield is a few... More

This campground has it all. The sites are private, clean, quiet, near or on the beach, and natural! It's well worth the drive; which isn't that bad unless you've never been on windy gravel roads before. I am afraid there aren't many campgrounds that are as wonderful as this one!!! No problems whatsoever! I highly recommend. I actually went in... More

A gorgeous site. And with the interesting little town of Bamfield close by, well worth the effort required to get there. The washboard gravel roads won't be for everyone and after trying the route from the west end of Lake Cowichan on the way out and the route through Port Alberni on the way back, I would definitely recommend the...

Lets start by stating that the drive in with our truck and 12' tent trailer was not quite as bad as previous commenters make it out to be. If you have been a city slicker your whole life then maybe it could be viewed as horrible with 'pot holes the size of my car'. However, the dirt road is riddled... More
