We were in the 'family' section of the camp. People are close together with not much privacy. Our neighbors with company vehicles, prolix painting, decided to drink and party until 2:30am in the morning on night one. Their dog was loose and was roaming around and ate our dog's food. We complained, but the campground still let them stay another... More

Arrived to a campsite littered with beer bottles and cans, my site, like most others in this camp appeared to be one campsite merged into two. Tents where pitched feet away from my picknick table and tent. There was at least 8 tents within 10 meters of my campsite. People carry on with all kinds loud inebriate behavior all through... More

This campsite has a great location near the co-op and Tribune Bay Park and Beach. There are too many sites at this campground so there is a feeling of overcrowdedness when the place is full, which is most summer weekends. During our stay from July 12 to 19, we noticed that the so-called 10pm quiet time is not adhered to... More

I and my family were excited and skeptical about visiting this place. Despite reviews posted to this site. Upon arrival to our campsite we were blown away that 2 trailerswere to fit on this lot. there is no privacy, at all. Breakfast and dinners were not even 10 feet away from our neighbors. the showers were filthy and the only... More

I'm not gonna lie -- I was quite apprehensive about camping at this site, given the negative reviews. But I took a chance, and I'm so glad I did! The campground was lovely, and the location cannot be beat. It's not wilderness camping by any means - it's busy with lots of kids and the sites are small, but it... More

We had a great time even with a last minute booking. We got one of the busiest traffic sites and everything was great with no problems at all. Kids loved it and we will be staying here again next year.

The Manager, Linda, was very friendly on the phone when I booked and again when I checked in. This large campsite has billions of kids running and riding around. This is why my children had such a ball. They linked up with other kids at the playground, rode to the beach and to the Co-op and had that feeling of... More

We began camping here before we were married :) This place has been the home base of many memorable summer vacations. Sure, it may not be for everyone but is what makes this campground and Hornby Island so great. With our daughters being teens now, they too have loads of childhood memories swinging on the jumbo swing and sneaking thru... More

2:33 am in the morning and just arrived back home yesterday from the trip from Vancouver. Linda runs a great campsite at Tribune Bay. She is a busy lady and she has seen many visitors over her years looking after the campsite. If she did not get back to you, its because she was busy. Over heard her talk about... More

Decently private sites, (good tree barriers between sites). Spent about a week here. Shower houses are fine but don't go in and around dinner hour as every Mom in the campground is trying to shower their kid(s) and it'll take forever. This campground is a stones throw from the coffee shops and co-op, and a little restaurant that serves a... More
