This was our second stay at Ford's Cove and we love it! Nice grassy tenting sites with room for two good size tents. Beautiful location, kids spent hours exploring the rock formations. The store is very well stocked and the pizza is amazing! Delicious fair trade coffee. We will be back :)

My boyfriend and I stayed at fords cove on the campgrounds Monday-Wednesday in early June, before the busy summer season started. We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and the extremely well stocked store available on site. We had lugged a lot of fresh food to realize we had a little mini costco with all my favourite... More

In really can not comment on the cabbins as we stayed two nights in our tent there, there was no power on site which was no big deal but there was also no water to wash dishes etc.... We were told that we would have to fill up a container from the very dirty bathrooms down hill, there was not... More

Hi: We are sorry to hear of your experience. Our staff remember you because of your Australian accent. That morning we had a male staff member working in the store. When he heard your complaint he had someone cover the store so he was able to check right away the campground washroom. The staff found a few pieces of toilet... More

We spent two night's at Ford's Cove Cottages--the first night in the campground, and the second in a beautiful little one bedroom cliffside cottage. The customer service was excellent and the cabin and all surrounding areas are clean and meticulously cared for. We are looking forward to coming back in August with the whole family.

Typically, we've stayed during the summer months in one of the three water-front cabins. This particular trip, we stayed at cabin #3 in late October. This time it was myself, my wife and our 3 month old son. The last time we stayed at Ford's Cove was back in 2010, since then there have been a lot of upgrades to... More

We camped here for two nights. It was a nice place to walk around and to go for a hike but not that great with kids. Water is in short supply and there is no playground. The sand stone at the waters edge is worth a look.

We've just returned from this fabulous camping trip! It is a really great location and very well kept. The views are breathtaking! There were four of us and I am glad that we took two campsites as they are a little bit on the smaller side. There is only 2 bathrooms which can be little bit tough at times but... More

I booked at Ford's Cove on the advice of a Hornby resident and I was not disapointed. The one bedroom cabin I stayed at was very comfortable and well supplied. It had everything I needed(dishes, radio etc) and nothing I didn't need. A few nice touches in the cabin I really appreciated were the live plant and the Scrabble and... More
