#2 of 16 Specialty lodging in Campbell River
Welcome to Brown's Bay Resort just North of the Seymour Narrows! Immerse yourself in Nature and connect with the great outdoors on the rugged East Coast of Vancouver Island. Decompress from the daily hustle and bustle and unwind from it all, while taking in the beautiful ocean scenery. Put your feet up and reconnect with the calm waters of the inside passage. Watch as marine traffic makes it’s way to and from Alaska and glides by effortlessly on their long journey ahead. Amongst the tug boats, fishing vessels and pleasure crafts passing through this corridor, wildlife of all sorts travel these waters to connect to their fishing and mating grounds. Whales, dolphins, sea lions and seals are amongst the many inhabitants we share this majestic backyard with. The splash outside the the window, the sounds of spouting water, the high screeching noises above, keep your camera ready to capture and create the moment of a lifetime!

Last minute reservation with a travel van. The road in is long 5 km of teeth-rattling gravel) and dark (logging road) so if coming after dark, watch for signss that say how one to go. Nobody at office after arrival so attempted (several times) to figure my way around the the. ‘Fishing pier’ site. It was a little dicey to get into with a large van, UTC modern, clean washrooms are a stones’ throw away. Very very quiet at night, occasionally foggy. If RVing please note that the serviced sites I saw seemed packed in side by side like sardines. I had a lovely one night stay and awoke to views of the channel and surrounding hills.

RV sites are designed for motor homes so challenging for trailers as all the hook ups are in the wrong place. You will need extra lengths. The lower sites have amazing views and look nice. Our spot was not good as we were way up top and against the hill, so our only view was of other RVs. But the clubhouse was a nice option to view the water. Internet was really poor. Cable hook up did not work at all.

This was our first experience at Glamping so didn't know exactly what to expect. The Tent offered exceptional ocean view & was more that adequate, size wise, supplying everything you might need to be self sufficient, with the exception of a convenient washroom. Having said that the shared bathroom was very clean & up to date just a little out of reach at 5 am when nature calls!. Large water tanks are supplied also, as there's no running water which requires all dishes to be washed outside at a washing up station provided. All of which we we're prepared for. However We we're promised a good internet connection prior to arrival only to discover it was so sketchy that it was virtually nonexistent. I asked for some compensation or gift voucher to make up for this to no avail. Given the cost of the accommodation we felt somewhat let down. Having planned to Kayak from our tent we were sorry to learn that it was too dangerous with the strong current and whirl pools in the narrows. Also the water was way too frigid for swimming. Be prepared to drive at least 15-20 klm along dirt road out of the resort to access a lake for swimming. Loved the location however wouldn't return given the price & various downsides.

Despite Covid19 and an ever changing ideology on how to deal with it, Brent, Esther and the staff of Brown's Bay Resort have done an amazing job keeping the staff, the residents and the visitors safe and protected. Although a very strange season, a very successful one due to protocols put in place and strictly adhered to. This resort is top notch in all categories under normal circumstances. Whether it is the accommodations, the floating restaurant, the marina or the spectacular scenery, it is hard to beat. Kudos to the management team of Brown's Bay Resort for delivering a safe, comfortable and relaxing experience for all of your guests. As a guest my wife and I certainly appreciate the additional effort you have gone to, to keep us all safe.
