#3 of 24 Specialty lodging in Vancouver Island
Quiet, safe privately owned campground nestled in a nature setting by Westwood Lake. Fully and partial RV and tenting sites, as well as 10 self-contained cabins and a larger sized cottage are available. Fun for the whole family with boat rentals and a concession/store on site. Very close to Westwood Lake where there is great swimming, hiking, mountain bike trails and fishing. Close to all amenities including aquatic centre, ice rinks, bowling alley, golf course, shopping, pub and cafes, bus route. We are a 7 min. drive to the ferries. We are one of Nanaimo's best kept secrets.

Super clean campground right around the corner from the lake. People were super helpful. Not far from town but if you wanted to stay around they had rentals for playing at the lake. It was just my daughter and I tenting and we felt very safe. My first visit to Nanaimo and we liked it so much we're staying at this campground again in two weeks! So excited.

I was looking for a tent site at Westwood Lake campsite on 06/23/19. They did not have any tent site left at the moment when I arrived. However, the front desk service staff Sarah Johnson was very friendly, warming, helpful and most importantly, very informative. She not only search on line to show me where can I go for tent camping, but also make phone calls for me to ask around for the availability. She even recommends me where will be a suitable campsite according to her camping experiences. Driving long way from MN, USA to Canada for camping, it is a pleasure and very helpful to meet such a nice and kind young lady to help me find a suitable place for a night before dark. Thank you much for Westwood Lake campsite and especially the wonderful service staff Sarah Johnson. Thanks much Dr. Chin

Our first visit to Nanaimo and Vanvouver Island. Ronda and Ian made us feel so very welcome in their lovely, quiet, beautifull park. We were treated as if we were family. The views of the lake are spectacular as well as all the trails. So much to explore in the area and surrounding towns close to Westwood lake. After a day exploring coming back to the campground with its friendly own little community and beauty is so tranquil. We so...so..much loved our stay !!!

I apologize for the delay in forwarding my appreciation for your constant concern over my daughters and granddaughters safety. In 2017 we pulled our Prowler travel trailer into Westwood and for the next ten months Robin and Ellie attended school. Whether is was propane issues, snow removal or dead rabbits you certainly helped in reducing her stress — she had enough of that as a matter student. We will certainly recommend your campground to all R.V'ers who plan to visit Nanaimo. Once again thank you Robin”s father

Wow. I've lived in Nanaimo for almost 50 years, and just visited Westwood Lake Campground for the first time, when friends were staying there. It is the cleanest, greenest, most amazing little treasure, ever !! From the moment I drove in, I was sold on the whole package. It has a sense of immediate calm and peace. It's spotless, and yet family friendly, complete with a children's playground, and showers etc. Everything is unbelievably well maintained, and the hosts, Ian, Ronda, and Sarah, are beyond amazing. I am seriously considering purchasing a small RV, just so I can take my grandchildren here for a week next summer. It's THAT amazing. Maybe I shouldn't let this secret out .......

Thank you Barbara for the great review! It's amazing how many people that live in this town have no idea what we have here. We work hard maintaining our park to make it a safe and memorable experience. Thanks again for sharing.
