We didn't plan to stay at Ford Cove but our first choice on Hornby Island was not what was advertised. But Ford Cove is a good cabin resort, not fancy mind you, but well run. We got the last cabin on the unplanned stay; the bed was comfy, the cabin amenities what you expect in a summer cabin; nice sun... More

SO pleased that the other campground that we had originally tried to book was sold out as it led us to this gem!!! I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island. This is the place to be if you're looking for quiet (only 11 campsites!!). Ronaldo was great, dog friendly, unbelievable sunsets. You're in for a treat here! Would love... More

Fords cove is situated on a beautiful cliff over looking the ocean. The camp grounds were treed spacious, the facilities were also fantastic, the general store very well equipped. The service was amazing we were on an extremely busy Saturday in August and wanted to order food but were too late, Renaldo stayed open and made awesome fish and chips... More

We've been going to Fords Cove cabins for over 6 years and will continue the tradition! It's an amazing location which offers relaxing large decks to swimming in front of your cabin on beautiful sandstone beaches. We love this place and would recommend it to others. The owners are also amazing and hardworking!

Everything is there to leave the city behind, sit on the deck with a hot beverage and contemplate. Hornby is quite remote and it takes special efforts to bring in supplies. Ronaldo and Matt make sure all bases are covered and that guests feel welcome. The cabins are located in a spectacular location and provide a comfortable base from which... More

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

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
